Took my mother to her beauty shop appointment and the subject of conversation is still the murder of that young man Eduardo Moreira that took place two weeks ago. Her hairdresser said that since then her clients from Del Rio have not been back and was surprised but glad that we ventured to her shop.
We went to visit an old friend of the family that owns a photography studio and whose wife has been ill. He said “you two are the only American tourists in town today”. He noted that since the senseless murder his Texas clients have been non-existent. It is a shame what the drug cartels and corrupt police have done to such a beautiful country and its people.
Stopped at Gutierrez (grocery store) and bought a couple of items but there were no to die for bargains this time. Stocked up on tomato, onions, cilantro, squash, cauliflower, serranos, cabbage, bananas, mole, bottled hot sauce, rice, sopitas, yogurt and for my trip to South Brewster County the milk that does not require refrigeration until it is opened and lasts three months Nutri Leche.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
