There are statues all along the water front near where we were staying. This was my favorite, and is probably my favorite shot of the 7,000 I took!

An interesting fact; most of the people who live in this squatter’s camp are employed! Many of them work for the hotels and restaurants in the tourist area of Mazatlan. But, obviously, they are not the ones making the big bucks. Shame on their employers.

I was talking to one little boy who didn’t go to school, apparently some of them do and some don’t. I asked him why not and he said the other kids made fun of him because he was so poor. Breaks my heart.
