check point charlie

A short while ago I finally had to produce my driving papers at a check point. Thankfully I had just finished all my renewal stuff and was ready as we approached the orange cones.
We have been through others many times but never were stopped, this time we were. A smile, a couple jefes (it means boss/ sign of authority or head person) thrown in and off we went.
I was always anxious in the past at these as my spanish is ok but mostly in situations I know, I struggle a bit when caught cold, but eventually manage ok.
Now while driving I am confident as we approach a checkpoint that we will not have any issues.

until next time........

pickle barrel

My turn. I thought I had them but felt better, ignored it , it came back, bugs.
After a quick trip to see Dr. Toral for a couple scripts I feel much better.
I think it is not if, but when, as to parasite infection. Part of life here in the "3rd world".
until next time..........
