Ain´t gone happen Gringal, Darlin' and you know it. These morons could not adjust to life in Chiapas and, as much as I am fond of you, do not pretend to place the Bay Area on a scale with the Soconusco. We are not on the same planet and I say that as one whose life in the <Bay Area started in 66 and ended in 01. Rise above the crackers with whom you have ostensibly affiliated. They are unworthy of your trust.
Funny, that is how I view people like yourselves. You wouldn't have lasted 6 months in the gringo enclave of Lake Chapala as recently even as the 1980's let alone the wilds of Chiapas.. Think about what your life would have been with no toll roads to easily transport you back and forth from the lake, probably no telephone line in either home and your selection of table wine limited to Los Reyes and Santo Tomas. Hell, when Padre Kino came along we thought we had died and went to the Napa Valley.
If you think the imported goodies at Super Lake are pricey you should have seen what the fayuqueros got for their "imported" merchandise. You took it or left it. Some people could or learned to live without but most were back in their home country pronto.
Ahhhh the good old days!
