Yesterday morning some bads guys with a gun (apparently) robbed the tortilleria. Normally this wouldn't make much sense as tortillas are subsidized and cost practically nothing so everyone can afford them. However, since everyone needs tortillas, the place is also the spot to pay your electric bill which arrives every other month. The bills came in last week, so folks have been anteing up mucho dinero. Anyway, our tortilleria was one of three different hits in the area (Melaque, too) so I guess we can expect some police presence in future. Like elsewhere, there's not a lot of work and times are tough this year for everyone.
