PANCHO VILLA SP, NM—Well, I know why She sent me here. Right across the street from the park is a little auto repair place run by these two Mexican guys. Since I’ve decided to hold off on the van idea until I get a little more savings built up and a good head start on the book(s), I figured it was a good time to get the brakes done on my truck.
Total cost to have both brake rotors replaced, new bearing, new brake pads, and an oil change: $250—at least half what I’d pay in a non-border town.
I also had a pair of computer glasses made up in Mexico. Again, about half what I’d pay in a non-border town: $75 out the door.
So I figured by Her sending me down here, I saved at least $350, probably more.
She works in mysterious ways. The trick is to learn how to hear Her whispers—and the hardest part—how to listen to them.
