Anything Goes

oaxaca This car was parked just along the margins of Llano Park.  I snapped this shot because the dune buggy, with its official license plates and pretense as a regular auto, reminds me of how often I am delighted by the anything goes approach to transportation in particular in Oaxaca.  I think about the free ride in the back of the police truck; being crammed six people to a collectivo taxi (in a car with a gear shift); standing for the duration of a bus ride, butt to butt, with as many people standing as sitting; riding in a moto with five people barely hanging on… When I think about it, a dune buggy really isn’t so noteworthy at all.  I know that anything that goes — goes.
