  • Corrupt Cops - Just say No!

    by alohagunnar Written Apr 1, 2009

    Just as I was crossing into Bolivia at the Desguardero border crossing I was approached by the Peru National Police who took me to a room and asked me to empty my pockets and place all my cash on the table so they could check for "counterfeit" currency. There were three police in the room and I had US$600 cash in my pockets but I had read in my guidebook not to show crooked cops any money so I told them politely "No Way Jose" and they let me go on my way without further incident.
