Women who Shop

The pointless excess of US high end shopping malls was today's lesson. They exist in all major cities. I was in the Westchester Mall, wishing I was not. Tiffany, Nieman Marcus, Mercedes, Tesla, Nordstrom, Bulgari......

My cab driver was from Dominican Republic and shared my disgust at the empty affluence. He had just returned from a trip home. It seems that the DR is suffering in a similar way to Costa Rica. The drug cartels began by using it as a transit route to the US, now every school and village has its own drug users with the associated violence and other issues.
