Have you ever felt extremely disappointed in yourself? You spend hours, days, weeks, maybe months thinking about incidents and trying to detach it from your character. You try everything in your power to push it to the side and not deal with its impact. Me too. This is the first part in a multi-episode story about how I got myself out of Mexico alone with no passport, cell phone, ID, credit cards, or cash. I will detail the situation leading up to this, how I got out of it, how I felt along the way, and what I was finally able to take away from the experience.
