Random Observations and Various Rants

For my fellow Spring Breakers.

Posted by Andrew on February 13, 2009

If I were you, I`d cross Cancun off my Spring Break list.

Kidnapping, violence kill 21 in Mexico. From 2/11/09.

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – A drug gang kidnapped and killed six people near a town in the U.S.-Mexican border region, prompting a series of gunbattles with soldiers that left 15 others dead.

Yup thats what I wanna deal with doing my vacation. Here is some more cheery news from our neighbors down South. This time from our friends across the pond at the BBC.

Cancun killings linked to cartels.

The bodies of a retired brigadier general and two other men have been found near the Mexican resort of Cancun after a suspected drug cartel killing.

The three, who were found dead in the back of a truck, were part of a protection team for Cancun’s mayor.

Authorities say they think the men were intercepted on a road near Cancun, then taken to a remote forest, tortured, and killed with a shot to the head.

Drug-related violence claimed more than 5,000 lives in Mexico last year.

That wasn`t the first time, that the Cartels and the Military fought.

Last but not least is this nice story, that really makes me wanna head down to Mexico A.S.A.P.

Over 200 Americans killed in Mexico since 04.

More than 200 American citizens have been killed since 2004 in Mexico’s escalating wave of violence, amounting to the highest number of unnatural deaths in any foreign country outside military combat zones, according to the U.S. State Department.

For everybody looking to head someplace warm for Spring Break, may I suggest

Luquillo Beach in Puerto Rico

Playa de Luquillo in Puerto Rico

or maybe

South Beach, Miami

and last but not least

A beach in the Dominican Republic.
