Mexico, Texas Border | Laredo Texas, USA
Pedestrians head north in the underground walkway of International Bridge #1 connecting Nuevo Laredo and Laredo, Texas. The bridge links two countries where cultural exchange is blurred and yet families are divided with members living on separate sides.
Every year five million people walk across the bridge at all hours of the day—to work, to buy personal needs and to bring back supplies to sell in Mexico. The interdependence is obvious as Mexicans, tired from a long day at work, lug shopping carts full of dog food and pampers, pass Americans in cowboy hats carrying piñatas after a stop at a pharmacy stocking up on cheaper drugs.Buy This Image
