Chloe, my hat goes off to you and your courage....., I have experienced the same thing on my visits to BC, SP and CC, all those voices coming out of the shadows, yes, at the time I fit the customer "profile", beard and longer hair(now shorter). I know also that they will approach the teens without any second thought. In my 30+ years of doing Mexico, both border towns and the interior, I have never been offered drugs, but my friends have, even here in Cozumel. I have have a friend from Canada, policeman, works undercover vice and drugs, he can't move without getting approached.

I have heard things have changed in the Mexican border towns, you live close by no?

You do have my support as a parent.
