To Guadalajara for meetings and the opening (tomorrow) of the Festival Cultural de Mayo. Just under a week ago, the city - or rather the State of Jalisco - experienced one of those intermittent spats between police and narcos which plagues Mexico as a whole. The 'spat' left seven dead. Thankfully, things have returned pretty much to normal this week and there's little likelihood of it disrupting the Festival. Which is of little comfort to the innocent citizens who have to live with narco-violence on a pretty much permanent basis.
