Monterrey – at the end

Filed under: travel,work — Tags: , , — mat @ 3:29 am

Everything comes to an end and so also my days in Monterrey. Work is done, customer is hopefully satisfied. Many thanks to my dear colleague Francisco (or as we call him Paco…). It was a pleasure. Work and the tim ewe spent together. Monterrey was hit by Hurricane Alex 3 weeks ago. The damage is visible mostly everywhere. But I guess we could handle it and the people will rebuild the streets and parks and all the other stuff. 3 days ago a policeman was killed 100 mtrs in front of my hotel. Awful. The war is here. War about drugs money and power. The german Spiegel sets the headline for that Drug war in México But sorry guys german only. I felt sometimes insecure and it was good that people carried me back to the hotel instead sticking me into a taxi with maybe a ticket to nowhere. I met friendly people and I guess I have more seen than all the Yucatan and Cancun tourists. What impresses me much was the old sénor who says whenever I´ll be back to Monterrey I´ll find a place in his house. So my suitcase is already packed I´ll go and have a beer at the poolside. And on Sunday I have my wife back. After two weeks, finally. I have never felt before that I miss her so much….
