1 April, 2004. We walked and walked and walked through Juarez. The Juarez Market was closed so we found a few bars and had a few beers. The 40 ouncers were $3, the 12 ouncers were $1.20 to $1.40 USD each. The traffic lights may as well not even exist there- no-one obeys them. People constantly run in front of cars and buses and the cars and buses are halfway into the intersection before the light changes. Lots of poeple missing limbs there. We got $16 dollar cartons of Marlboros (one per person with a $4.20 tax on each carton). Still a great deal (realtive to today's outrageous prices). After crossing back over the border, we went to a bar just a few blocks from our hotel. We had another old friend visit us at the hotel too and lots of fun again. We have plenty to smoke for the next week or two.
