Today there is a strike and we're advised not to leave our community. We hear this is common for June and July. All kinds of groups organize and strike, and when the mototaxi drivers get involved, it can get violent. This morning they were patrolling the streets to slash the tires of anyone daring to defy the strike and leave home. Most stores are closed to avoid potential looting.
We are stocked up with all kinds of non-perishables and for today and probably tomorrow have enough veggies besides. I'm not worried, but I feel like I'm living in the wild, wild west for sure.
