joc_lense I flew back to LA tonight from an incredible {understatement} six days in the Sayulita sun, where I overindulged in the $2 tacos and the 15.1% exchange rate, when I hopped in an Uber and was reduced to tears when my driver told me this: "You were in Mexico?! On vacation?! And you didn't have to hop over the border?! You are living my dream!! I paid about $6,000 28 years ago to cross the border illegally somewhere near Houston. I had never been more scared in my life. ... I worked in construction until I got citizenship and I never worked so hard in my life. My shoulders were bleeding from the water I carried; so heavy. Then I met a girl from El Salvador; she wasn't the prettiest. I wanted to marry Marilyn Monroe but she was dead, you see. But I got this girl from El Salvador pregnant and I told her she had ruined my life. But now, my daughter is 25 and she is smart and tall and pretty and a hard worker and I'm so proud of her. And my wife... She is now so beautiful to me; the prettiest woman in the world I'd tell you. Most people would consider me poor but because of them, I consider myself rich." #driversofuber #realitycheck 4d

joc_lense You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place. 5d
