    Up in smoke

    Wow. An old landmark for Sonoyta. Am I wrong, or has the once-booming business reduced in recent years to almost nothing?

    Mayan guards kicked us out of the estuary while we were fishing today.

    Does the new law address (or supersede) the law against vehicular traffic (other than for launching) on beaches?

    Temporary License Plates in Mexico

    I have done that as well, with no problem.

    Wind Turbines

    That's what they claimed.

    Wind Turbines

    Back when I was wondering about the contraption, I wrote to Customs and Border Patrol. Surprised to get a response, in which I was told that travelers who were still wary, despite claims of "safe levels," would have the option to leave their vehicles.

    Big boat sank

    Have wondered for many years what it must be like out there in (sometimes) bitter cold, damp nights on those boats in the dead of winter . . .

    A US tourist was beaten and stripped of cash...Periódico De Frente

    Glad to hear. Planning to go there (two of us) within the next day or so, and successfully entered a couple weeks ago (two on one card). It must be similar to protocol at the south-bound border . . . . it changes with the wind. So we'll see.

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Uh . . . I was being what they call facetious. (Clue: I was the first to give your comment a thumbs up.) I was merely reinforcing your point that the thread is getting tiresome (vulgar). As for my "weak-ass political shit," I don't share political stuff here, and don't engage with others...

    Ha! Well that’s my point – they can take their pick. That said, after RP’s response and my own additional digging, I’m pretty comfortable with the process now. A friend created the attached chart which puts things in perspective. Bottom Line 1: It might’ve been nice of Homeland Security...

    Surely they at least could let you know that you have, say, a cavity in the left molar.

    And here we thought the border agent was being facetious about the banana. (He said with a laugh and a wave, rather than "no, really . . . ")

    Thanks for the info. I didn't find that in my earlier search. And when I asked at the border, I was given a smart-a answer ("Oh, about the same dosage as in a banana") and waved on.

    Totally agree. And automation replacing the human element would make total sense, since it is much more thoroughly and consistently accurate. It's just that little issue about imperiling the victims in the automated process. . . . . .

    Well, without going all political, suffice it to say that It has become a “thing” as people continue to demonstrate to government that they quietly submit to infringement upon their freedoms.
