Thank God for ARFcom and the Internet. Otherwise, I would be completely bored out of my mind. I'm stuck in the pride of Chihuahua Mexico - Juarez. What makes it worse than spending a week in a warmed over hell hole like Juarez? Well, it's raining. If you have ever been here, you will know what I mean. Gives new definition to the word 'nasty'.

Anyway, thanks for keeping my sanity going. I can't wait to get back to the US. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!

work

God I hate this place. I wished people in the US really understood who FORTUNATE they really are. Maybe they wouldn't be so quick to piss away all their rights and liberties and all that made our country great.

Don't drink the water, eat the food or breathe the air.

Did I mention it is raining buckets? That means that I can't even go outside with a NBC suit on. Damn place doesn't even have storm drains.

As much as I dislike tidal waves of illegal Mexicans pouring into the US, I can at least understand why they do it. Mexico is a hole.

Last time I went down there, our car was confiscated, corrupt cops then stole it, my grampa was arrested and we were "asked" to return to Los Estados Unidos. Fuck Mexico.

A cousin took his RV down there. They were required to be part of a caravan and had a police escort to get around Mexico City. Without the police escort you could be robbed and killed, or so he said.

In Mexico, there are only mostly 2 classes of people, those that are very few very rich, and those that are very poor, a lot. Mexico only has a very small middle class, unlike that of the USA.

Its still a feudal system. The lower class is essentially beholden to the upper class.

I took a photo that displayed that explicitly when I was in Mazatlan. There are these rock outcroppings near the port and old city, with gigantic mansions and villas painted white like the Greeks do. At the foot of these houses' cliffs were disgusting slums. It was a total metaphor for Mexica society; the very rich at the top, the teeming poor at the bottom, and almost nothing in between.
