Surely he took a wrong turn?

Thanks again to the BBC for bringing this story to our attention.

Now, I was born in Manchester and lived there for most of my life but come on, if you're going to sneak into a country and work illegally, surely there would be a better option? Personally, I'd pick somewhere hot, like Texas maybe (don't worry, I am allowed to be here). Sydney perhaps? Bora Bora??

I would imagine Manchester would be quite a culture shock to a Mexican, especially one stupid enough to leave a good luck card in his luggage! I'm guessing customs have had much harder cases to crack (pun intended)!

To be honest, I don't think I've ever seen a Mexican restaurant in England. An Indian restaurant maybe. You don't get much more English than Indian food. We certainly love our curry but I don't think most people would know a quesadilla from a burrito. It was only today that I found out what a burrito was and there's certainly nothing that appeals to me in the words 'bean burrito' whether I know what it is or not!

  1. Well, there's been tons of success all over the US with Mexican restaurants, so I think someone should open one in your hometown.
