Just when we finally had ourselves convinced that it was safe to drive over the border, I see this on the Trip Advisor forum. It's an article about a gun battle that took place on a main street in Rocky Point last week at 6 p.m. in the evening.
Here's a telling line from another online news source: But until Thursday, the city had largely avoided the public gunfights that have afflicted many cities in Mexico's border region.
I'm not exactly an alarmist because we still travel to Mexico, but I think we'll hold off on our
first drive trip south of the border to Puerto Penasco for now. So unfortunate.
For now, we'll stick to safe harbor.
