Photo of the Day: Recycling Mural

This photo comes from a friend in my Spanish class, Stan. He took the photo in Teotitlán del Valle, a rug-weaving village just East of Oaxaca. Good eye, Stan.

I'd now like to visit the town and see if there is a story behind the mural. One blight in Oaxaca is all of the graffiti. I wonder if painting a wall with an image (such as this recycling landscape) discourages graffiti more than, say, just a blank white wall.
