Here is what I know: Some of the schools are closing down. I don't know if it is all of them or not. It is because the Mexicans don't feel safe letting their children go to school. The military is in Jocotopec and in Chapala, stopping every car that comes into the towns. More of my friends are moving out. Others don't seem to be bothered at all by this recent turn of events. I am not going out much but I am also living in a beautiful home with a private pool. It is nice here and I wouldn't have been leaving much anyway. That doesn't mean that I am not afraid. I am. I just hope things will get better soon. Life goes on.
