we also said, words don't mean anything, and take your own TP.

The cops are ALWAYS trying to squeeze you for money, and you probably didn't do anything wrong, or if you did, they didn't see it, and they're banking that you'll fold. Don't fold. THey're bluffing. Always.

Don't be an asshold and don't be a tourist. Soft targets are easily spotted and hustled.

Use your hand, wash in sink, India/Nepal style. Left hand only please.

If the sink doesnt work, they usually have a hose outside.

Ah Mexico and the TP sales at the door of the banos.Mas!...Mas!...!

Some countries in South East Asia, that's what they supplied you with for table napkins, TP. They had a nifty plastic holder/cover just for that. Remove the center cardboard roller, put cover on and then pull the TP out from the center.I watched many tourists, myself included pull a (long) lenght out and head for the squatter.

The typical table napkin in Mexico, just not up to the task....carry TP always.Trying to remember if they sell TP by the roll in Mexico,I think so but may be confused with Asia in my recollections.

Looks like I may be finding out again for myself this winter after too many years.

A few years ago my wife was asked in NYC if we have TV's and VCR's down here.

Yes, toilet paper became available by the roll recently. It's not popular though as it's hard to transport by donkey, and we can't reach the roll holder on the wall because our 6ft sombreros and ponchos get in the way.

The "I'm gonna backhand you" gesture actually means thank you. No, really. It's used pretty frequently in traffic too - if you let a car go in front of you or if you allow a pedestrian to cross you'll probably see this.



This guy probably means something else though:

Laugh

Donkeys still???? Good if they only have to move TP now, them were moving heavier stuff.I like donkeys....and still laughing!





Had to steal my old pics back from Arte's thread.

They'll come and visit...if you hang around the deserted beaches north of Zihuataneo, may be the only living thing you'll see all day.And no problems disposing of wastes there the hermit crabs were all over it at night, clickety click....gone by the next day.

You're a tougher hombre than me if you use hermit crabs as toilet paper. Me, I prefer to keep crabs as far away from my gentleman's parts as possible. Especially if they're big enough to reach out and steal your dinner rolls ;)

We got Sky...

Next.....electricidad, hoy!

..then running water, when I get that blue barrel on the roof and a hose. And yes, it will be agua caliente!

Cooking is no problema, bring wood por favor.

(this at my neighbor's across the alley...great people they are.)

Bring some humility and compassion, it will go a long way here.
