Backstreet Vocho/ VW sedan

I don’t drive a vocho – a VW sedan – never did.  This one says Mexico loudly – they continued making them here until around 1999 when the tools and dies were long past worn out.  It also touches on the Mexican weakness to alcohol and the proliferation of AA clubs in the country.  I don’t do that either.

But this is Merida backstage.  Behind the renovated colonial homes of the expats and the international commercial strip of the nouveaux riche upper middle-class of the northern part of the city.
