The latest dispatch from an anonymous American prisoner in a Mexican beach town jail, sent from his contraband cell phone. This week: piñatas filled with drugs and money, the six-times-sold refrigerator, and more.
Believe it or not im havin a hard time 2 write a little every day i think of something that happens. Reading, going 2 gym, the store, & candy biz has been keeping me busy. Now i have a friend making me shelves 4 my plancha so im helpin. Really i just stand & watch because i could never cut a straight line & fuck knows how anything in the carp shop gets cut straight. The table saws r made of wood & blades r mostly straight. U have to compensate so u get the most straight line. W practice u can do it. (but as they say n colombia any tool is better than ur finger nails). Get this, there r no blade guards! Not 1! Im really surprised that every1 has all there fingers. I mean there is always a lot of people n there wrkin. U bump n 2 each other (esp me) so statisticly i would think there would be least 1 accident. Oh yeah most every1 has on flip flops. My friend has been wrkin on these shelves 4 weeks. 1st we measured. Then we thought, the main purpuse 4 these shelves is 4 me 2 hide my cell phone. So we came up w the system & made that 1 1st. It’s beautiful. Very well made & im very happy 2 have waited the time.
My 1st year here we had 2 parties 4 christmas. 1 was w the visitors & after 4 us. The 1 after we had drug & money pinatas. Not every1 could go but i chose not 2. But i heard bout it. When the pinata broke they went through like locasts. Most friends got nothing but 1 guy got lots! Several crack rocks & $. They have use the pinatas few other times that i did go to but would never chance going 4 anything. Never get n way of stampeding mexicans when they r going 4 free drugs or $. Bad bad bad idea.
The pink gangster. OMG! U should see this kid! In fact i will try 2 get a pic. Its 2 funny. These guys all dress & act like they r the badest & hardest thing since granit. But this guy is always wearing girly style outfits. Pink & baby blue bandanas that match the pink or baby blue ny yankee hat. Plus i think he has a girly face & really if he had breasts i would believe it was a girl. I promise 2 try hard 2 get a picture of this clown. Thats how i see there people now as clowns or animals. Either they dress funny or r just a jackleg dumb fucker.
When i got here there was a guy named jose m. Every1 made fun of him cuz he went free but was back the nxt day n time 4 rancho breakfast! Can u imagine being here 4 1yr going free 4 a few hours be4 ur back again? Well he went free after another year & few months & was gone a few weeks b4 he was back. He stayed a few months then went free, hooked up w the christians & was gone a long time. Well he is back again. Whats his crime? Same as the other times, stealing watches from walmart. He sells them 2 buy food. He gets caught at the same 1 i suspect they know him by now. How many times can they same guy get caught b4 they c him coming.
Ah finally a little honesty. A killer who confesses, but not n court. My friend gets a new roomate. Him & 2 others r accussed of killing a brazilan tourist. They ment 2 just rob the guy but he was holding out on them or so they thought. My friends roomate puts a plastic bag over his head. So the guy died a slow horrible death. So when they all get arrested they are screeming conspirsy & all sorts of bull shit. After awhile though the man who put the bag on head breaks dwn & confesses 2 my friend. How he feels really guilty, its all he thinks about so he had 2 tell some1. Well he will have 6 yr at least at least 2 keep thinking bout it.
The gurds 1 job they have 2 do is list. Thats it the rest of the things they get inmates 2 do. I have a guy n my cell that is asleep & snoring again before they get 2 end of the list. There is only 7 of us now. We got rid of the old man creeping jesus. He was 2 damn slow, now he is some1 elses problem.
There is a guy here w patches of hair missing. It looks really weird because it is just a cluster n the back of small & big circles. So i asked 1 day. He use 2 have real long hair, but when he got arrested the police grabbed the hair & dragged him cross the floor & in the process ripped out a clump n the back. He has had those bald spots ever since but now some of the spots r growing hair again.
Electricity is off again. It gets so hot w out a fan going. It was off 4 2 days & 2 nights last time i was online so i may have told u bout aleady. But it is off again. The boss in his infinite wisdom put ac units n all the conjugals upstairs. So the electricity was a bit dodgy 2 begin with, now with all those acs running it will b proper fucked. Luckly 4 me i live n the newest building so we have pwr most of the time it has just been recent that it started cuting off regular. The rest of jail’s pwr goes up & down like the volume on the tv. Ur fan spins slow light is dim the next thing u know the fan is at hurrican speed & light is bright as the sun.
There is a new american here that has quite the story. He claims 2 b a retired USAF major. As well as a doctor & he had a scolarship 2 play basketball @ college. Oh and he has terminal stomach cancer which is why he came 2 cancun. He said his crime was frauding a hotel when he went in w a guest that was staying there & said he was staying also. The security guards figured out he didnt have a room confronted him. He offered 2 pay 4 a room, no go. They sent him 2 jail. He also says that he has a $7000 peso bail. His exwife also n airforce is coming 2 pay the bail. He is going free soon. She comes, goes 2 pay bail & he isn’t n the system. But not 2 worry that happens a lot. So nxt day he is n the system exwife pays the $7000 pesos only 2 find out bail has gone up because he passed 15 days here. Hmmm. Something is fishy here. She didnt have extra $ so he had 2 stay over weekend but she cant visit cuz airforce rules say she cant visit foreign jails. So monday comes she pays the extra bit but he is still here. This was around father’s day & he is still here. He borrowed some $ from richard & was supose 2 have his family send $ to richards wife. He had excuse after excuse why it wasnt done then his brother died by drinking driving then 4th july weekend. The brother that died did it 4 me. I thought then that he was a liar. He also claimed becuse of being a doctor he has been wrkin n the doc office here. So i asked the head doc & he knew nothing of the sort. I now doubt everything he has ever said. The only thing is he has doctor looking hands, knows bout officer school details, tells believable stories bout iraq, & being a doctor. My guess is he was a really good nurse or asistant. The sad thing is he is a likable guy but i dont trust a word he says now. Also when richard went free billy caused big trouble 4 richard & the bastards in charge of the office were able 2 steal more of richards stuff.
Richard called me at 1am the other night. He was going free wanted me 2 take care of some things 4 him. I was 2 give his stuff he left w guy n other cell 2 his wife later that day, give his refridge 2 guy that bought it & i get the very nice table he had made. When i get 2 his conjugal at 7am everything is gone but some dishes, garlic, 3 joints & 2 zig zags. I go 2 office at 9 am w guy who bought the fridge. Office said rich sold fridge 2 6 people & does guy have a recipt. I get rich on phone he explains i get table & the guy gets fridge. The zetas stole it. But they didnt care bout the table so i got it back. The guy didnt get fridge but boss gave him the $. The office guys got some phone credit.
