First thing yesterday morning the emails began, followed by phone calls and visits from well meaning friends, associates and even a few enemies.
“Did you see the news?” They all said.
It’s quite amazing, the less people know about Mexico, the more they know about Mexican violence. the more adamant they are that for us to even think of the place is bad, bad, bad.
I read the advisory and all I see that is new is they have added the hurricanes and a couple more border towns to the mix. In reality the advisory reads a lot like it did in 2001 when we first RV’d to Mexico.
I do agree that the hysteria surrounding Mexican travel has reached new levels. One of our friends will not be making their annual trip to Donna Texas for the winter “because of all the violence”. Now how silly is that?
