Book Promotion | Chiapas, Mexico | On the Road

I crossed the border in Chiapas, toward Yucatan.

Chiapas is an activist state, home of the National Zapatista Liberation Army. I went through two blocked roads on my way to Tulum; roads are blocked by the peasants to demand a toll because of grievances they have with the government. They gave me a flyer explaining why the blockage. I gave them a flyer too, and I explained to them that the blockages were misplaced. They should block Wall Mart and Coca Cola; the politicians are just puppets. I think they got the point: Banks and International Corporations are the problem, and everything is connected. It is a worldwide problem, and the elite has plans.

My flyer: Flyer top

I missed another blockade by hours. I could tell because a lane was still blocked by barrels and other debris. I don’t know what this had been about. Everyone was still armed with clubs and had a threatening attitude. I decided to leave before they blocked again, but I left some flyers at the gas station. Spreading the word.

Please do the same. Support my work. The more people know the less power the oligarchs will have. Grave implications.

The Road to SLO | The Shell Oil Co . . . Amazing!

On the road

I went to San Luis Obispo, CA to try to get a review for The Eye of the Dragon in The Tribune. April used to work there; she is the lady who wrote a review for my first book, A Vagabond in Mexico. She wasn’t there anymore though. And they told me that at the moment they only review books by local authors. I had figured that that was likely to happen, nothing stays the same. But I had to give it a try; it is not far from Santa Barbara, where I’m staying at the moment.

When I arrived, I stopped at the Shell gas station to use the restroom, the one at the corner of Santa Rosa and Monterrey. The attendant, a tall, dark-haired unpleasant youth said that I couldn’t use the restroom unless I purchased gas. Isn’t that amazing! Since I wasn’t ready to purchase gas at the moment, I walked to the building across the street where they let me use their restroom.

I used to do business with Shell regularly. Not that I am looking forward to do business with any of them; they are all part of the entity that controls our government. As soon as I can I am getting an electric car . . . or a bicycle. Let’s boycott all of them.
