"JUMPING STRANGERS!" Mexico City Travelogue by jumpingnorman

Mexico City Travel Guide: 2,185 reviews and 4,550 photos

I TAKE JUMPING PICTURES OF MYSELF, and people see me and then they smile, hahaha...Then, I ask them to jump for me, lol!!! You think you can make strangers jump too?

These girls (one from Canada and another from Korea) were walking along the coast when they gave me directions to walk the other way, since there are moai head statues in the other direction (they said, and they were right)...I had just arrived from the airport less than an hour, hahaha

This page was inspired by the FACES page of VT member berenices...saw the face of a Filipino man photographed (a stranger unknown) and the JUMPING STRANGERS idea came to my mind, hahaha

" hi norman, nice to know that FACES
inspired your JUMPING STRANGERS page...
i'm flattered!
i promise to jump for you if ever we bump
into each other somewhere! :-)"

Then, about 45 minutes later (after I took the picture above) I saw this German guy who was on the same plane as myself...

The same German from a distance - I shouted to him, JUMP!!!!

And I was tired and just sitting on a rock when this HongKongese passed by and I asked him to jump, hahaha - it was with sign language because he did not talk too much English :)

And here is somebody from mainland Chile who was on Easter Island for business and just taking in the scenery...I asked him to jump as well...

Amazingly, later in the afternoon, I found some real natives of the island resting on the grass...I asked if they could jump for me too, hahaha


This group of friends saw my sister and I taking jumping pics in Nikko, Japan - I asked them to jump too, hahahaha
