Mexico bound

Tons of pickup trucks loaded with second-hand goods have headed to Mexico since I've been here. Most were part of the annual "Paisano" or "CalMex" holidays parade of Mexicans living the the US who head down to the interior to visit family. Some are a big group of more local Mexican residents who go to yard sales and swap meets to by used items to re-sell at their second hand stores.

The most common items are washers and dryers and bicycles. Bicycles and large toys such as plastic kitchens for little girls always bring a smile to my face. I always imagine the joy on the faces of kids whose parents can't afford new items but buy these used toys that are as good as new to a child who receives them.
