Don’t Travel with a Red Car In Mexico

Don’t Travel with a Red Car In Mexico! 🙂

I took this humorous photo in a rural area of Chiapas, Mexico, and I thought it was a good photo-journalistic image 🙂

My husband and I noticed this funny scenery while driving on the back-roads of Mexico. We happened to be behind this red truck and had to slow down to better observe and photograph the scene in front of us.

This big horned animal was really agog by the red moving car and started to follow it on the paved road. I’m wondering what the driver was thinking about, but maybe people there are used with kind of encounters… Of course, we’ve seen cattle on the road many times before, but never something like this.

Well, it looks like the saying about bulls being attracted to red–moving objects is not a myth! Toros can be dangerous not only in a Bullfighting (Corida in Spanish), but also on roads – huh!

So, don’t travel with a red car in Mexico, especially on the country roads! 🙂

Now, if you think this image is funny, the good news is that you can have for your wall. I uploaded it to my Fine Art America gallery where it’s available as art prints for wall, home decor, accessories and gifts. Just click on the picture to see all the options:

  1. Ha, Tatiana, that is funny to think about. However, it does make sense. I have driven in Mexico and through the desert Southwest of the USA – and I have seen livestock all over the back roads. I recall my wife being astounded when we saw three head of cattle waling through a McDonald’s we had stopped at in Arizona.
