I was going to write a little piece about Valentine’s day in Mexico (here it is called the Day of Love and Friendship), but I realised that these photos say it all. Enjoy!

The photos do say it all. Valentine’s Day is Valentine’s Day pretty much everywhere. The lost balloon at the end is rather sad though.
It had a happy ending! We reunited it with its owner, the guy on the motorbike! I wonder if Valentine’s day is quite like it is in Mexico, anywhere else in the world though?
Great pictures, especially the gray shutters with opposite facing hearts. Good eye for color and composition!!
Thanks Carmen! You are, as always, too kind 🙂
