: how many of you have a passport?

: have you ever left your own state?

Only place I ever needed the passport was to get into Guatemala, and that border crossing was so easy, I think I could have told them I lost it and I would have gotten in. As an American.

funny crossing, though, because they charge you to get in $5.00 US. this is the border crossing from Mexico to Guatemala. they don't accept pesos or quetzals, just $5 US.

I hooked up w/two English girls, no US money between them, but they did have pounds. Not good enough. No way.
I loaned them some US cash so they could get in.

Then, my turn -- no fee if you're American.
So if you are Mexican, and going from Mexico to Guatemala, where do you get $US? Who has $US?

Oh, yea. Guys who sell drugs have $US.
Campesinos, no -- no los tiene porque no se pueden consiguerlos. Los banquos no los cambian para pesos porque siempre dicen que los pesos no valen nada.

Drug war, anyone?
