EL SOL AND LA PRENSA—BLOOD AND BODIES GALORE

 Still in Guadalajara and enjoying the ambiance, sunshine and cervezas but had a nasty shock when I picked up the local papers.  Both La Prensa and El Sol de Guadalajara had pictures of dead bodies—different ones!—emblazoned on their front pages.
  El Sol’s gruesome picture was of a young man’s blood-covered, bullet-ridden body sprawled on the back seat of a car while La Prensa featured three wrapped bodies–a girl and two men—found in a rubbish dump and below them a picture of a naked man, found in a canal. For good measure La Prensa also had two large dramatic back page pictures of a dead man lying in the road after having been hit by a truck. The headline: No Alcanzo a Cruzar (I Failed to Cross).
 It was enough to put readers off their breakfasts and not the sort of thing you expect to find in your morning newspaper.
 Can’t wait to see tomorrow’s news.
