Mexico Is Famous For Many Things,

Mayan temples, cenotes, mariachi bands, beach destinations like Cancun,

 the 'day of the dead' festival, discovering chocolate, many thanks for that one! and unfortunately, drug cartels and the tunnels they use, so it came as a surprise to see a true 'love tunnel', rather than one used for drug smuggling, photograph Facebook, it started like this, Antonio, a bricklayer from Villas del Prado 1, was having an affair with a married woman from the town’s Tijuana neighbourhood, in order to make sure no one saw him visiting his secret lover, Pamela, the man started working on an underground tunnel that stretched all the way from his home to the woman’s, Antonio used his experience in construction to dig a tight, but durable tunnel, once it was finished, they were able to meet in secret, every time Pamela’s husband, Jorge, left to work, I should point out that it was not a short tunnel, it actually went under several streets, now you know what I am going to say next! the husband returned from work early, and found the couple it what you might describe as a compromising position, the bricklayer tried to hide from the furious husband, crawled under the bed and disappeared into the “love tunnel”, unfortunately for him, Jorge started looking for him all through the house, and when he looked under his marital bed, he found the tunnel entrance, following the tunnel the hugely upset husband ended up in Antonio’s house, where the desperate bricklayer begged him to keep quiet, because his wife was in the next room and he didn’t want her to find out about his extramarital escapade. That managed to enrage Jorge even more, and the two men got into a fist fight. Seeing a strange man beating up her husband in his own home, the shocked wife called the police, and Antonio had no choice but to confess his unfaithfulness, news and photos of the 'love tunnel' were leaked on Mexican social media last week and quickly went viral. The story was covered by national and international news outlets, with Antonio drawing comparisons with drug kingpin El Chapo, 

I shall never be able to listen to Dire Straits Tunnel of Love without remembering this story!
