La Calle Roja
La Calle Roja
Just after the sun starts peeking through in the morning, I like to go out on my photo walks. The streets are peaceful and quiet, with families just waking up for the the day. A few people are starting their walks to the bus stops to travel to work, schools, or travel outside the city.
Many people, especially those who are visiting Mexico, don’t realize that there are people that wake up before the sun to do all the prep work for their jobs, especially those in the food industry.
For example, there are people who meet farmers early in the morning to start milling the corn before it’s turned into the ground paste used for tortillas. Bakeries also start baking and preparing their goods early in the morning so the aromas can greet people on their way to work.
While it may seem like the whole town is still sleeping, there are very hard workers preparing for the day ahead before everyone wakes up.
