A Little Too Much Shared

Maybe this will temper my enthusiasm for shared space?

My parents have been here for the last week (thus the blogpause) and on Saturday we went to Teotihuacan. On the way home we drove past the protest below:

The whole square was filled with lines of naked protesters. The police ring kind of obscures the view in the video. I had to come home and do an internet search to figure out what they were protesting. The form kind of interfered with the message in my opinion, I couldn't figure out the signs. They are protesting the actions of previous governor of Veracruz, now senator, Dante Delgado. Apparently they've been periodically protesting in this fashion (or lack of fashion) since 2004. There were a lot of participants, whatever Senor Delgado did, it upset quite a few people.

Funny, and very interesting. Maybe this senator blocked the import/export of cotton to make clothes. Or shut down clothing factories?

I loved your fashion pun...

I bet Sam had more than one question about those drummers. Nice. Rachel

Luckily, Sam was asleep.

Thank goodness for the obscuring police ring (and for public decency laws in the US) --though such a spectacle would have given us a good laugh. I can only imagine the endless modesty comments that would come from H and M after such a drive.
