  3. I see to spend a lot of time in The state of Chihuahua. I love the state and the honest people. I travelled through toward the interior of Mexico often. I visited all of the night clubs and discos of Juarez frequently. I raced bicycles there once a week and even participated in the Tour de Chiihuahua one year. Those were happier times for tourists and residents alike. The deaths chronicled in this story may be of drug dealers. Either way, I won't be hanging out in Chihuahua anytime soon. I pray that I can someday visit Chihuahua again without taking the risk of violent death.
