I noticed that from the stats that the times that I have gotten the most hits is when Salt lake is in the title.
I wont abuse it because it will be lile the boy who cried wolf. That eventually people will get indifferent abt it
I also realized that there was one story from my time in Mexico. When I was on my walk to the center of Mexico City I was abt to cross a busy street . I was looking for the crossing button. I couldnt see one. Then I saw a button which I pressed. It was only after I pressed it that I realised the spanish was saying only press in an emergency . A lady spoke to me through a speaker .
It startled me at first as I didnt realise there was a speaker. I tried to explian to her that it was a mistake . eventually they got someone who could speak English. As my Spanish was very basic
I explianed to to then that were I’m from there is always a button to ptrss to cross the street. I thought it was that button.
The guy explained to me that its illegal to press the button when it is not an emergency . He instructed me to stay where I was.
I panicked and continued walking rather than wait for the police also my time was limited . abt 15 mins later a police car pulled up next to me. one of them could speak English. he asked if i was the one who pressed the button.
Yes I replied . I explianed to them the reason why. they were very understanding They let me continue on my way. They also wanted to make sure that I was feeling safe and if there was anything that they could do for me. I thought of asking if they could drop me off in the center of the city but thought better of it. I replied that I was ok. They got in thier car they followed me till I reached the next major st then turned around and drove off. .
I kept on envisioning that they were going to drag me off to spend time in some seedy Mexican prison . that I’d miss my plane and everything would go pear shaped .
But it all turned out ok.
