  • So there I was driving west on Zaragoza from the Ajijic Plaza heading toward Rio Zula in West Ajijic and I had just passed the Danza del Sol Hotel when I spotted two kids helping each other to climb a high residential wall during the full mid-day sun and I found that somewhat alarming but I noticed that there was a gardener sweeping the street precisely in front of where those kids were scaling that wall and I made the asumption that had those kids been up to no good that mature and respectable looking gardener would have accosted them so I simply drove on rather than confront them as I certainly did not wish to make a fool of myself and today I realized that, in light of the notion that new sets of gangs from outside the community seem to be working our streets, perhaps I should have alerted the authorities but I´m a sumbitch if I know who the authorities in Chapala Municipality are in the first place so why should I make a fool of myself alerting people I dont know from Adam´s Housecat what activities, no matter how suspicious, are engaged in and that may be a huge part of the problem we face here.
