damn...that is one scary story. The Mexican mob is beheading press members who do any articles, etc that has to do with the Mexican drug lords, etc. Looks like Baja is off my list anytime soon.

Ugh....

Me: How was Brasil.
Them: Amazing...great kiteboarding...
Me: No issues, you didn't get robbed?
Them: Oh yea... we got held up 3 times.

:-(

I guess I'll take Baja off the list too.

Yeesh.

South Africa looks like nirvana....where I only saw 1 guy get beat to death on the road.
