Why Survivor?

If you were maybe asking yourself  "Why survivor?" then I have the answer for you. About a year ago I was at my girlfriend's house and she asked me if I could go get her some batteries for the remote control. I said sure why not? so it's 11:30 PM I go to an OXXO a chain minimarket not unlike 7-11, get some batteries, start the car, back up and then BAM! I get cut off by a black truck and a Pointer car, the guy in the passenger seat gets out of the car and aims his gun right at me while other guys most likely underaged get out of the back seat with AK-47's. I didn't shi my pants just because I hadn't eaten too much that day. I will tell you how it ended in a few more posts.

Life in Mexico I

Regular day at the market, passing through the streets of my city, a convoy of black trucks followed and being shot at by the army. I still can't get used to having actual soldiers on the streets and it's been almost 3 years since it all went down. A 1000%, yes one thousand, percent up in death rates in the first trimester of this year against the last one. What am I even doing here.

The Very First Post

OK so I finally decided to start a blog, and I even tought about a good subject. So I'm just a regular guy living in Monterrey, Mexico, a place where soceity is breaking apart. I will be updating as much as possible about things that happen everyday in Mexico and also a little bit about the life of a middle class mexican living through all of this.
