I haven’t had enough time in Mazatlan. Despite becoming Princess Bacon and asking to eat two dinners and skipping ziplining to walk around Lanoria, I’ve only scratched the surface. There are so many more things I want to see. But there is no time. Instead I’ll post these photos as a promise to myself to come back and explore more.
One of the things I’m most interested in when traveling is how the indigenous population evolved and how prominent it is in each country. I’m afraid we don’t do a very good job of celebrating our indigenous culture in Canada, but I was amazed by it in New Zealand. In South America it was different depending on each country. I didn’t spend enough time here to learn about it in Mazatlan.
Mazatlan is an interesting mix of the old colonial part of town and the modern development. The street art seems to be some of the most interesting I’ve seen in Mexico and apparently there are a few prominent artists that you can spot across the city. I really wish I had found someone to give me a tour of the street art here and possibly meet one of the artists.
There is an area on the waterfront where these guys will dive for tips. It’s pretty incredible and I really want to know the story behind why they first got into it, how much money they make, and if anyone gets hurt.
While we have cowboys in Canada, they aren’t on the East Coast so I find this culture, especially the historical aspect for it, fascinating.
And of course the food, there is never enough time to eat!
