MEXICO: I think if everything looks terrible for us here, it should be worse reading it in US newspapers!!
Well, 200 years ago we were in war for independence.
100 years ago we were in another war. The revolution now is against the narcos!!!
But let me show you the other side of Mexico.

Dawn in the Sierra
A friend of mine that lives in Chihuahua is working in “la sierra” right now.
This is how it looks. Isn’t it paradise?
Mexico is worth fighting for — don’t you think?
The big question is: Is the strategy against the narcos the right one?
I’m not sure anymore.
