so it turns out I needn't have fret about the visa; I could have gotten it and paid for it right here at the airport. I just did pay it, and these guys say there's no need to return it. just about every other INM agent lied to me then, and that explains why I had such trouble in the past trying to do it. the visa cost me MX$295, for which the agent returned US$13 from my $40, so $27. no doubt he kept the change. exchange spread is very wide here at the airport, I should have changed money in San Ysidro but was hurrying, not knowing I could get my visa hassle-free here 24 hours a day.
anyway I'm grateful, I got here alive and unmugged. if I don't sleep through the checkin tomorrow, I'll be in La Paz in the afternoon.
