No not the one you are thinking of.....
As you travel around the country you see multiple fires that are set from agriculture burn. Not that burning old corn and other waste is exclusive to this time, but it seems more prevalant.
Mexicans burn everything.
Coconut husks and fronds are probably the worst in the smell department. Corn fields not so bad, but one habit they have is to set fire to the land adjecnt to roads, that sometimes is an intersting predicament since between the smoke and the visibility that gets limited from the bellowing blowing smoke.
Perhaps the roadside fires are a result of some tossed out cigarette butts, but based on how many they are, I sometimes wonder.
The normal pristine view of the lake with Janitzio is sometimes a little difficult to see because of the haze, a few more months, the rains will bring cleansing to the dust that settles on the grass and leaves that have been dusted from speeding vehicles and wind placed from the dry looose soil.
So, not too many landscape pictures unless they are on the beach.... but with nice weather inland there is no reason to do that, now just now.
