Stand Here?

Monday, September 19, 2011

When we first arrived in Guadalajara D and I were walking and I saw a smaller version of this green square on the sidewalk.

Weird huh? 

So I side stepped it. I was not sure if it was some Mexican prank and I was a scared that if I stood on the circle something would come crashing down on me.

Paranoid much?  Not really.  I was just thinking about my own mischievous nature, and how if I had painted something like this below our apartment it would be perfect for water balloon target practice!

Then I stared seeing these targets all over the city - so either everyone in Mexico was a prankster or these green squares meant something else.

I was a bit bummed to find out the latter - they are evacuation meeting points - not giant water balloon targets.

So I guess it is a good thing that I never threw any balloons at people/cars on the green square near our apartment - diplomatic crisis averted!
