They are getting so sophisticated.  no matter what people say  the tunnels are an example of the genius of chapo.

about the concrete.  the access was cut, the hatch placed then concrete over it and painted the entire area for uniformity.  to the naked eye, nothing was noticeable...but for that nifty machine...

The way I see it.... the more people that don't like me, the less people I have to please
