I do not want or intend to get a discussion of politics going but simply want to comment on what happened to me and a friend today at a government office in Chapala and to find out if others have experienced anything similar from officials or locals. The person at the desk filled out the necessary paperwork for my friend but said in Spanish that there would be no English spoken. My friend does not speak Spanish, so the official told me that when she called back with the needed information that it would not be in English, so I offered my phone number for her to call, which she wrote down; then she went into a rant (voice raised, rapid speech, hands gesturing) that Mexicans go to the US and work so hard, and YOUR President doesn't want us (friend had to produce passport, so she knew our nationality), so there would be no English spoken for us. She emphatically added, "And Pena Nieto will NOT be going to the US to meet with Trump." S I tend to be positive thinking, but I feel that this is only the beginning and that backlash against US citizens here could come from officials and locals in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. I was hoping this would not happen, but after experiencing this today, I'm now having different thoughts. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
