The next day, we went to Costco since he wanted to buy some typical Mexican caramel chocolates and tequilas. Again it was CLOSED. We stopped over at Valle Oriente, a gigantic shopping mall. Goddamn!!! The whole mall was CLOSED. The taxi driver missed few exits, as a result of which he made us have a Monterrey tour from one corner to another on the slowest of the roads. Luckily the Walmart was open for him to grab some stuff from Mexico and he got a bit more luckier that he could taste Gorditas in the end.

I bet one could not get more unluckier than this one. JJ, my good old friend (he is still as lascivious as he was 6 years earlier during college days) and one among millions of proud desis working in Dallas was here for a vacation. When I say "here", I mean Mexico, which according to people like JJ is a poor, uneducated, third world country full of pretty senoritas, tequila drinkers and immigrants trying to escape to america for moving lawns and selling dope. If there is one person on this planet, who is exactly a counter-me, then it has to be JJ. While I get excited by travel, hiking, nature, photography, adventure; he on the other hand drools over nightlife, laziness, pool tables, sleeping in addition to few unmentionables.
