Gabriel Traveler says:

I use one of those little gorilla pod tripods. Not as versatile in terms of using as a steady cam or getting the camera much off the ground, etc. but better than nothing and super small and lightweight. Good for simple stable shots. By the way I’m also at Plaza Mayor….my hotel is just a half block from the plaza of the same name in Valladolid, Spain. Happy travels!

Grab Shell says:

thanks for this video. I was wondering if I should use a tripod or now. I guess I am. by the way, great shots. wonderful location!

Arturo Wagner says:

I lived in Chihuahua for almost a year. Brought back some memories.

igor jerez says:

Why did you visit Chihuahua? that nasty, naughty, awful state from mexico, there where people is proudful and starving. There where people do not worth a fucking dime. There where people is so stupid ignorant rancheros and stubborns. There where young people promiscuously match together at their 12 years old and are not able to use a fucking computer in this 21 century. There where music is like a clown like music and really very low cultured. Go better at least to Jalisco. You fall down right there my friend.
