The recovering city of Villahermosa

By Brian Rogers | 1 Comment » January 12th, 2008

A 13 hour bus drive leaves us in the formerly flood ravaged city of Villahermosa near the Gulf Coast. Certainly off the beaten path, we got to take a look at how this city is recovering from what locals called the “Mexican Katrina,” which affected more than 300,000 locals. See how the recovery effort is progressing in today’s photos.
