As I mentioned previously – the ‘unauthorized’ use of celebrity images is pretty common around here. We talked about this before in conjunction to Kim Kardashian and Rhianna – and today, while driving around Mexicali taking pictures for a section of the book on architecture, we saw yet another example of this. (Sorry, Kim – we were in traffic, and seeing it was unexpected, so the photo is blurry – and I know, my window is filthy) – but it’s undeniably you hawking clothing up on a sign outside a clothing store on Blvd Anahuac.. Just thought you should know..
In other news – spent the day trying to find the elusive “casa de Louis Vuitton” which is a house of the outskirts of Mexicali painted brown with symbols to look like a Louis Vuitton bag. I know the house is still there – yesterday one of the people who lived near the house was lamenting being a neighbor – but the address and directions were far from correct..
I did get some more great photos of Mexicali.. including one of the fancy car dealerships down here.. (I like to remind people that Mexicali has one of the highest standards of living, and income in all of Baja).. There is a growing middle-class here (and just like most of us), they like nice things.. It’s another side of the road photos since I wasn’t planning on taking pictures of car dealerships..
A lot more photos but I haven’t gotten around to sorting of all them yet..More architectural adventures tomorrow..
