: The family wishes to extend an invitation to you to come down to Mexico and visit.
****I'd love to.
We will tie you to the back of Juan's truck and drag you all over rural Mexico so you can experience the country as the natives do...
****Been there, done that. On Juan AND Juana's trucks. It was a bumpier ride than I expected but I could handle it. You don't get more rural than the outskirts of Nogales.
or you can hang out on the hilltop and watch the valley below...gorgeous sunsets guaranteed. Holy Water on the rocks with a twist.
***Done that too. The sunsets in Nogales (and in Tucson) were incredible.
: Oh...and leave the cross and vinegar and whips behind. Why come to Mexico as if you were going to hell?
****DAMMIT MAN! I told you this wasn't a conversion trip, it was an IMMERSION trip. THe trip can best be described as a pilgrimage. Nogales felt like a holy site minus the crosses and giant black boxes. Every moment spent there was full of the diversity of the border culture. And every moment spent with the families that we stayed with on the border was full of a lot of laughter and happiness. No prozac needed.
