Mazatlan just beyond the area around Plazuela Machado is filthy: garbage piled on street corners, animal and humanfeces, rats. Why?
Which way are you walking? I was walking around last week from Olas Altas down to the Market and didn't see anything like that.
Because we like it! Or perhaps it was on the garbage pick up day, when people put their garbage out because the garbage men won't come into your house to collect it.
