The river in Chilpas/El rio en Chilpas

Our friends who grew up here tell us this was once a beautiful, clean river where they had picnics and swam. The last photo of the maquiladoras above the neighborhood shows the cause of the difference.

Nuestros amigos que crecio' aqui dijeran que fue un rio lindo, limpio donde la gente disfruto' de comida campestre y nado'. La ultima foto de las maquiladoras arriba del barrio muesstra la causa de la diferencia.

thanks Lynn for these pictures. I will use them in my lessons on mexican maquiladoras and the damaging effect on the ecology of the border region. I am a geography teacher in the Netherlands.
