Just part of the local color. What's a tour of Mexico without a robbery, drug sale, or gang gun battle? Or maybe a couple of human heads rolled down the street?

Arriba arrrrrrrribba!! ;)

Simply visit Texas. It's just like Mexico, without the diarrhea.

Definition of "Cruise Ship."
1. Giant floating shopping center.
2. A place of confinement.
People go to a football statium and spend four hours in a crowd. They breath a sigh of relief when they get out of the parking lot.
People go on a cruise ship and are forced to spend anywhere from three days to two weeks in a crowd. The only way to get away from it is to hide in your cabin.

Why would anyone go to Times Square if they did not absolutely have to? I was there one time. I did not lose anything there so I don't need to go back.
