In one word: Hell.
In order to bring the white sugar from Colombia to Mexico, smugglers have been increasing their level of sophistication, going as far as using home-made submarines to get the goods there.
But according to the Der Spiegel, the crews of these submarines have to put up with little space, no standing room, incredible heat and the overwhelming smell of shit. Did I mention the smell?
Worth more than $60 million on the streets of Miami or Washington, many see the risks and discomforts as worth it. Others, like former submarine captain Gustavo Alonso, had no choice. A fascinating look into a very-short career-path I'm not interested in taking.
