Mazatlan Observations

Most of us have heard about the crazy driving in Mexico, it is all true here in Mazatlan! You never really know how many lanes there are supposed to be. There are cars all over the place. The rule seems to be if you can fit your car in the space then you do it. The brother we are staying with gave up his motorcycle because of the traffic. The congregation lost a sister last year who drove a vespa type bike. Buses here kill a lot of people both in cars-motorcycles and pedestrians. So when you hear the warnings about Mexico don't forget about the traffic! Oh did I mention that people ride in the back of trucks and some trucks have benches and are carpooling type vehicles. It is common to fit 7 in a sedan with front bucket seats!
