My 1,000th blog post and what is it about – llantas!
I am not a llanta blogger (just a blogger with llantas 😛 ) and by now you have seen the close-up pictures of the giant 10 hour tire fire in Nuevo Laredo from all kinds of sources – TV, newspaper & bloggers (LaSanbe, DeLaredo 2.0).
On my way to Rio Bravo that morning, I pulled over to snap a distant picture of Mexico and the black plumes. Then I saw them… the blight of Laredo and Nuevo Laredo… las llantas! And right in front of me, too – good thing I didn’t have any matches or lighter with me.
In this heat and drought, we are lucky more brush has not caught fire. We too might have had a parallel black smoky fire polluting the air.
