Mexico: flat tire, palm fronds & vaccination
On the highway, the RAM display showed me the pressure loss in the left front tire. We turned around, fully inflated the tire with our compressor, and drove 10 KM back to the small village where we had just passed.

Mexico: trust and checkup
We are standing in front of the cash register in a large shopping center in Tulum.
The cashier is pushed aside by an inspector, who searches the cash register and every possible place where money could be hidden. Picked up the cash register and looked underneath. The rubbish bin was raised, the price list folder was checked to see whether there was paper money hidden somewhere.
