Doing Good

Post by strife » Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:26 pm

I'm *this* close to taking off to the Texas border to work. Do-Gooders and AILA are hitting me hard, as a Spanish-fluent immigration lawyer, and sometimes I worry about the state of my soul. I'm probably headed to Harlingen or McAllen, where I imagine it'll be ten billion korgys for colleagues.

It's not going to be like working for Santander, no. I've committed to a week/50 hours. South Texas in July. Told them I don't drive, they sounded like I'm crazy.

I don't care much about Mattering, but I'm kind of a sociopath. This seems like the right thing to get involved with. Also, I need some Action. Fucking with ICE is always a good thing.

I've only met two Amerikkkan lawyers. One was Strife, and the other was an older guy called Chuck who I met in Puerto Escondido in Mexico.

Chuck told me that he'd built his career prosecuting Mexican Coke barons in California. Later he semi retired to Mexico where he was in the process of drinking himself to death. At some stage he met up with one with one of the guys he'd put behind bars who had since been released from prison in Amerikkka, and had restarted his career back in Mexico. Seems Chuck had somehow become friends with this guy despite their acrimonious past, in fact that very night his friend was having a party at his house, and I was asked if I'd like to come along. I cried off.

If you're going to go that far south, why don't you rather hook up with likes of those guys? It might not help with alleviating guilt, but I'm sure it could be more profitable, provided you keep your head moving at all times.

I thought "Puerto Escondido" when you were looking for alternatives to your Groupon deal. I liked that place.

But I think the Texas gig would be good for you. If nothing else, you'll be in the moment.

The fuck? Puerto Escondido is easy access to the water. If you're in the town, Adoquin straight down to the bay. Carrizalillo, the steps.

You're right Veronica, there's a hectic undertow there. Great for surfing though - the Mexican pipeline, but Strife is also correct if you go to the other side of town, there's a horseshoe bay where you can even try snorkeling if you don't mind being trashed against the rocks.

Chuck took me to a place north of there called Roca Blanca, on the back of his 1950's Chev pickup with his dogs. Awesome spot - highly recommended.

The main break in town is called Zicatela - the Mexican Pipeline. It's a hard break, screamingly fast, in shallow water. It Destroys excellent surfers. I'm not an excellent surfer, and Zicatela Destroyed me the few times I attempted it. You can't even swim at Zicatela, not even if you're lifeguard-level swimmer like I am. It will Destroy you. Once, I got drunk (the only time), and tried to body-surf Zicatela. I almost drowned. There's also the Punta, which as its name suggest, is a point break at the edge of Zicatela. There's also a pair of points at Carrizalillo, and there's an occasional beach break at Bacocho.

The main hostel in Puerto Escondido, the Shalom, is just above Carrizalillo. It's far inferior to the other one, the Mayflower, on the Adoquin, but for some reason more popular.
