In addition to personally shooting and killing all the narcos south of the border, Mexico’s president Felipe Calderón is now an official tourist guide, using his office to promote Brand Mexico. Watch him here with CBS News’ travel editor Peter Greenberg, going deep down into the Cave of
Despair Swallows in San Luis Potosí. Too bad he didn’t stay there.
Calderón declared 2011 to be Mexico’s year of
thousands of civilians needlessly murdered tourism, whatever that means.
By the way, the random Spanish subtitle in the screen reads “I want to tell you that we are going down to the bottom.” Nothing to argue there, Mr. President.
“The Royal Tour” will begin airing in the US on September 22nd in PBS, and in Mexico on September 23rd. Stay tuned.
