Thanksgiving Border Crossing @ Laredo
StreetVendors in Laredo a whole lot for sale!

When we crossed the Border at Laredo it seemed like the entire population of Northern Mexico was either trying to cross one of the 3 International Bridges or selling something at the crossroads to the motorists waiting to drive through the immigration checkpoints. It was rather like a traveling Mercado. Vendors were walking through the crowded streets selling everything from grilled corn & jewelry to Mexican National Flags items & huge Corona beer mugs! An hour & 15 minutes it took to get through the crowded streets of Laredo.

The border pictures of traffic lining up brings to mind traveling across the George Washington bridge in NY over thanksgiving!

The traffic jam brings out the standard/universal handsignals, honking & frustration that there is no language needed for.
