The Wonderful World of Color
There are many things that I enjoy about Mexico.
We will talk about the positives today, the vast variety of COLOR.
From the gaudy Bardahl signs, to the lime green Castrol (which are becoming fewer, thank you) to vividly painted homes that still have the moxie to cast their personality to all with Blue or Yellow or Mustard painted exteriors.
Lately I have seen many new housing tracts pop up, that have neutral colors.
Returning from the coast on the auto pista, we passed this truck and I just had to take the opportunity to snap a few.
How much salsa is that load going to make?
Stuff peppers perhaps?
I know it will not be anything spicy, so perhaps its for the Applebees or some other chain that attracts Gringos like bugs to a light......Waaaay to spicy for me, that black pepper! ( I really had a friend of mine say that all the time in Santa Rosa)
Yellow, Red and Green Peppers are not spicy....flavorful yes, spicy NO! But since the vegetable was called a pepper, it just had to be spicy...
It is interesting to see friends that come and visit down here. I would say that about 90% go with the flow and are game to try anything and everything.
The other 10 percent, I question why they even come down if all they order is cheeseburgers with fries....hold the mustard...too spicy. They are the same ones that never order a Pepperoni Pizza.....it has spicy pepper sausage in it!
Anyway back to the peppers.....The colors are so vivid to the point that you cannot get any more true yellow, green and red.
Nature at it's finest....and we can simply enjoy, taste and savor......
I wonder how much that pickup truck load cost?
