What do you mean by " offered their hand"?

We just did 3000 km in Southern Mexico and were stopped by cops who search the car and then let us go. We were with a young Mexican who told us it was illegal for them to search the car without cause but since they had the guns I told her to be quiet. We were not hit for any bribes at any point on our trip.

We noticed that many cars were stopped and search by the military but we were waved on every time. We were near the border with Guatemala so I guess white faces were not what they were after.

Also were stopped by indigenous teachers who had taken over the Sna Cristobal Tuxtla booth and were "collecting" the tolls but we had no problems anywhere.
