Naked Mexicans

Frida Kahlo

They did it again. Naked Mexicans!

Today hundreds of bicyclists rode naked on the Paseo de la Reforma all the way to the Zócalo, the main plaza of Mexico City. They rode naked so that drivers would see them. The government is encouraging more people to go green and ride bicycles, but there aren’t many bike lanes and the drivers don’t respect the cyclists. Most people think of Mexicans as being very conservative, but once again they took off their clothes for a cause. No word on whether or not they wore helmets. Amazingly, I didn’t find any pictures of the bike ride on the Internet.

I remember last year when a photographer wanted to break the Guinness record for the most nude people in a photograph. He succeeded in breaking the record by putting ads in the Mexican newspapers and asking volunteers to come to the Zócalo to pose nude. He easily broke the record!

I forgot to put on my helmet!
