Nice pics, but I am disappointed in the lack of heinas, coca, and drug war victims. And you should have flicked that shit as you blew it up. But yeah, nice.

I fail to see any severed heads, donkey shows, or massive quantities of drugs so your photo thread is an absolute failure

my mom grew up in a fishing town so she grew up on seafood, and what you get out there compared to out here.... it's just no comparison. i wanted to stay longer, but i was only in mexico for 9 days, and i only was able to spend 3 days with my grandma, and missed out on seeing a bunch more cousins and nephews... im already planning to go out there but stay for at least a week with my grandma but i seriously cant handle the heat and humidity plus the mosquitos are relentlesly biting.

my time out there was short and i couldn't really get away myself to do some wandering and spit english game to paisa chicks. but fortunatly the drug war hasnt hit southern mexico like it has in most northern states. just a lot of petty crimes, like robbery, assaults, and shit like that. there is alot of MS13 out there tho. i actually filmed the firecrackers as they were popping,

You get props for the food pics if nothing else. Every time I have been down to Mexico, its been awesome. Shame its gotten so much sketchier in the past couple years. I mean its always been kinda sketchy for a honky like me, but its gotten out of hand lately.
