Dreams from the Border

I took this photo of a Vaquero (Mexican Cowboy) deep in thought in front of the United States-Mexico Border in Tijuana. This is the famed "wall" President Trump always talk about that extends into the Pacific Ocean separating the two countries on the beach. Previously, the Vaquero was walking around with his troupe playing music for tourists on the beach in exchange for donations. Later, the Vaquero stopped to sit on his speaker, lost in time. Only he knows his own thoughts.
