I slowly picked my way across the narrow stone walkway, perhaps twelve inches across at its widest, and tried to gauge the uneven footing ahead by the light of the moon. To my left was a steep plunge, the stone wall dropping far down to the bushes and mud of the river valley below. To my right, at arm’s length, was a rock wall I could use for balance, if I didn’t fall into the murky water in between. This would have been difficult enough under normal circumstances, but it was made all the more so by the fact that the U.S. Border Patrol was on my tail. This was in May of 2008. I was participating in Parque EcoAlberto of Mexico’s Caminata Nocturna, a simulation of an illegal crossing of the U.S-Mexico border, with about forty other tourists.
