Mexico - July 11th, 2019

Mazatlan in the mid-day heat

The heat forces tranquility on the town. Mid-day the buildings no longer cast shadows on the narrow streets. Everyone has gone indoors, to be still by whirling fans in open windows. In the morning the cafes are full, no one leaving the tables, staying as still as possible until it’s too hot to bear. By noon everyone is gone, the cafes are empty. After sunset, the Malecon is packed and the cafes revive, hardly a table to be found. Everyone has come out to live, and be loud, and see who’s there.
