It's been a tough rainy season for the tropical southeast of Mexico and much of Central America. This was what last weekend's rain looked like in Santiago Tuxtla, Veracruz. I swear it barely stopped raining for about 30 hours straight. Rain rain rain. It was unnerving.
Below, what the rain looks like in the city. Rubbish that finds its way into street drains inevitably clogs up the drainage, leading to temporary streams and lakes, all over the place. Mexico City is drowning in rain but is also running out of potable water. The contradiction messes with the head.
