A year or so depending on how business goes. We’ve just been asked to inspect 20-30 small schools. No real details yet.
I’m in Cuernavaca, about an hour South of Mexico City. Stop on by if you get a chance. See it before the volcano blows! The volcanoes—Popo and Isla—are actually about 50 miles away and not even smoking right now, although at one is live.
This is Cuernavaca with Popocatépetl in the background.
The military likes to keep a high profile so you see them, always three guys in the back of a truck with a rack-mounted machine gun, one guy always has his hands on the gun. This one looks like a BAR but they usually have .50 cal. At toll booths, checkpoints, banks, etc., you see guys in uniforms, body armor and automatic rifles walking around. It’s a little intimidating at first, but you get used to it. You don’t try to take their picture, though.
I got pulled over for missing my front license plate by five cops bristling with weapons. They took one look at my Hawaiian shirt and all started laughing and let me go.
