Nogales - AZ






























Before the Swine epidemic, there were/still are kidnappings galore conducted by the drug cartels all along Nogales. I had no idea what was going on down there and had I know, we would not have gone. I guess our "HECHO EN MEXICO" hats saved us. Or it could have been the plastic baby Jesus I was asked to hold on the plane by my Latin friend who sat next to me. Either way, I'm glad I got home safe.

And yes, that last shot is literally someone being detained 30 ft away from the MX border.

Big colorful prints for the walls of your home or office can be ordered right HERE.
