sad but true

I may be at the point where I throw in the towel and look for a new spot for the family vacation. I travel that road often when I am in town, family in tow.

Last year on the way back from Barra, we missed a big shootout by mere minutes on the main drag near Achotes. Marines shooting bad guys, bad guys shooting back, flipped car and road closed for hours. This was in the middle of the day, not 4AM.

I have been championing the area for years as a safe family location. While I feel if you stick to the tourist area, no issues would be expected but that is not the nature of my ideal vacation. I like to get around and explore....somewhere new I am starting to fear.
