The quirkiness of LatinAmerica

Definitions of Quirky: something that is strange/not normal but cool or A peculiarity of behavior; an idiosyncrasy

With over 10,00 photos I have a month of Sundays for writing blogs once I get my thoughts on the individual subjects. Having said that I want to start that I loved the quirckiness of things in Latin America, I have come to realise that there are 2 Latin america’s one south of the Darien Gap and one North of it.

There are things you pick up or see during bus trips or just walking around and noticed how things are different from one country to another or from one part of the continent to another which is more defined.

Here are several sets of photos showing something different or unusual things from several of these countries.

In this particular country all Motorcycle drivers must have visual jackets with the licence plate on the back and in the back of the helmet as pictured. This is to reduce the incidents of theft and prove of ownership, but it was not explained to me how it works.
