Piedras Negras- Home of the Mexican Army
In a place too dangerous to stop the car, a photo taken through the front windshield. The Banner appears to show the indoctrination of a young boy into the culture of the Mexican Army. Piedras Negras, located on the border with Texas, is an area of active cartel activity and violence. The army is essential and new recruits are always needed.
