ill tell ya,its not that bad…yet.
I dont go to tj or san luis rio colorado or any of the larger towns along the southwest border.
I stay in the small,dirty hill folk towns.
the ones where if you are not across the border by midnight you are a mexican untill 8 am the next day.
but the risk shifts from LE to the locals which,its alot like being from bev. hills and going to south central to score. and I tell ya they can get ruthless at times.
most are really nice to me but I did see just the other day an older guy take some kid in his 20s and dragged him into a public bathroom no more than 100 yards from the border and beat him down for being arrogent and rude to him.
I walked in and peed and it was like another day at the office.
border towns are turning into a war zone.
our economy isnt the only one thats suffering.
there are less jobs and less money in mexico so whenever they see a snobby,well dressed,arrogent little middle class white boy they jump all over it.
and thats how they see americans as an atm.
if you choose to go I wish you lucktake people with you,have someone you trust that speaks spanish not just school spanish either I mean take a mexican with you.
switch yourself into gangster mode when you go and be nice and polite and respectful.
really cant think about anything else I can say,going to mexico is like second nature to me,its my second home
I have a girl friend in algadones that her family loves to see me when I show up, so ya be very careful thats it
