Reading comics...

Bonsoir, mes chers lecteurs, comment ça va tojours? A dear friend of mine was kind enough to share his neil gaiman comic collection, so I've just devoured Death - The High Cost of Living. Gaiman is quite good.

On other news, I happen to see a forced eviction today. Not a nice business. There were even some riot policemen, to prevent any confrontations, I presume.

oh, well. Rêves doux, chers lecteurs

Bonsoir, mes chers lecteurs, comment ça va? Any of you both here in the city and elsewhere in the world heard of the ice skating rink they set up in the Zocalo (downtown plaza) here in the city? Its very pretty and over three thousand square meters in size, and a waste of money considering the other unattended needs. Not to be mean, it's nice to have pretty things like that in one's city. Not to be unfair, it's privately funded. But the cost of keeping it running until January 12th might as well be spent helping restore Tabasco which is still in very poor conditions, don't you think?

Rêves doux.

You may have already seen one of these...

If you live in MX City. Bonsoir, mes chers lecteurs, comment ça va?

I recently came across an Alcoholimeter Checkpoint (that's what we call breathalyzers here, Alcoholimeter) and the police officers there were kind enough to let me snap this photo of it.


The breathalyzer is an Intoxilyzer® 400 Made by CMI Inc. Breathalyzers are not 100% accurate and might produce abnormally low or high alcohol counts given a situation. Here in Mexico, if you believe you have been detained unjustly due to a wrong B-Alyzer test, you can request a blood test, which the state must provide. Also, so you know, onion, mouthwash or breathmints can fool a person but not one of these, before you try anything funny. Oh, mind you, the checkpoints have a towing truck readily available, so if you don't pass the test, I do believe your vehicle gets towed, so to add insult to injury, you would have to go get it an pay an extra fine too.

Rêves Doux, chers lecteurs!
