Sunny, with a slight chance of shootings and grenades

American Border, Laredo TX

Today we went to Laredo TX for another shopping trip. After almost 3h on the road we finally arrived the American border where we needed another hour to cross the bridge. At the American side we had to discover that they give a damn shit on our visa which we got as we entered the USA just a few days before. We had to apply for a new visa. With the exact same form that we filled out back in Germany as we did the ESTA and also in the plain. Also we had to give away our fingerprints again. Just ridiculous.

Weee! 😀

Anyway, we enjoyed the day shopping in Laredo. Besides several shops we also hit a mall which had a Macy’s in it. So the shopping spree continued. 😉

For lunch we got to one of the famous Texas all you can eat buffets. $10.5 for a very rich buffet and all you can drink, no wonder that Texas is the fattest region in the world.

During the shopping the we got a call from Hector’s cousin that there had been a shooting between the military and suspected drug dealers right in this neighborhood we passed on our way to Laredo. There also have been rumors that both sides used grenades, quite a party I guess. :O

Anyway on our way back we didn’t have any problems except for our navigation system which has absolutely no maps for this area. I can imagine why. 😀
