    Here are a few of the road hazards I came across on my recent ride to Guatemala.

    This is just north of the city of Oaxaca in Mexico. There is (was) a teacher strike going on there. Violence escalated, and from what I understand, nine people died here.

    The first photo is a New York Times photo

    These photos are from my trip. There were still road blocks and I had to detour through double track dirt roads to get to this point.

    The same bus from the first photo but I came upon the scene from the opposite direction. The gist of the sign calls upon the president to find the murderers, we want justice

    [​IMG]

    Another strike roadblock in Chiapas just north of the La Mesilla border crossing to Guatemala. I was able to squeeze by on the left side by the white van. The upside was that I was the only one crossing to Guatemala when I got to the border.

    [​IMG]

    About 15 miles into Guatemala I came across this. Quite common after it rains....which is like every day during the wet season. The green foliage in the road is the Guatemala version of orange cones.
