Two hours in the Company of a Mexican Soldier

“That’s messed up,” I said “Because for the people of Reynosa, and no doubt, the rest of Mexico, you are the only ones we can trust. We’ve always thought you deserve more support, in Twitter, there are those of us who have been talking and we feel there should be a bank account opened in which we could make deposits as token of appreciation.”

The officer seemed taken by surprise, but after realizing my comment was sincere, he asked: “What time’s your flight take leave?”

“In about three hours”, I replied.

“Well then”, he said, “come with me so you can see how we live.”
