Giaco Wants Travel Security Tips After 2 Argentina Girls Killed?
I met an old timer once who told me how he escaped naked from a Mexican jail after two years for being arrested for getting too rowdy in a bar. He owned a school bus business in the US at the Mexican border. His unlucky day was when he visited a bar in Mexico, got too intoxicated and started throwing punches with someone. He was thrown in jail that was like a black hole. He was not allowed any communication to the outside world whatsoever. He was never tried nor ever saw a judge. His family didn't know what happened to him and without him his business went belly up. Since he had no one from the outside bring him food he was virtually starving to death. He was very tall and had been quite robust but after two years hard labor with hardly any food he was reduced to looking like a walking skeleton. His jailers not so much as allowed him a haircut or a shave. So he had an extremely long beard and his hair long like a hippy's. One day a jailer tipped him off that the head honcho at the jail had it in for him and was planning on killing him. This jailer made a way of escape for him but leaving him barefoot and butt naked. He said that he hightailed across the desert to the US border taking him about two days. As soon as he crossed the border their was a dirt road where he was lucky enough to flag down a car. He looked affright, like the walking dead. He bemoaned having ever getting drunk in that Mexican bar.
I asked a girl here in Pana who I know drinks, etc. how to stay safe? She said wear shoes you can run in, and not sandals. Which is one extra advantage when you are already in trouble, but avoiding a problem is the first priority. I have only been robbed a couple of times in 18 years, it is what I call my claim to fame, my ability to avoid thefts. Please note, anyone who explains a story of guns, knifes, and other crime that they experienced at the loser, not the winner. Sort of like a person married 4 times explaining how to stay married, just the wrong example.
