The cartel-related drug violence in Tijuana continues to rage into 2019 with 18 killed in as many hours this past Monday and Tuesday, leaving at least 68 dead in the new year.

The figures were provided by the state attorney general’s office, according to local reports. A total of eight victims were also found wounded during the time period.

Tijuana set a new record for homicides in a single year in 2018 with 2,508 thanks to an alarming number of cartel-related murders–most tied to the street-level distribution of drugs. This violence continues despite numerous measures taken by Mexico City to intervene, including military surges and use of additional federal and state police personnel.

The members of the military-surge and the federal and state police probably are the cartel.

We've visited San Diego but declined taking that Tijuana Trolley down to Mexico. :biggrin-new:

Another vacation spot that isn't appealing to me is Cuba. My niece and her husband just returned. I don't quite understand the appeal of the place, would never contribute any of our dollars to that communist regime. But I think she learned a little lesson on a socialistic authoritarian state. The airline lost their luggage for several days. She tried for days to buy toothpaste. I wasn't to be found anywhere. It reminds me of those stories of the Soviet Union where people had to wait in line for days to get bread or toilet paper.

I wonder if they have many dentists in Cuba? Just a thought. :biggrin-new:
