Mexico has the reputation of being a place where people are randomly shot and killed just for being on the streets.
In reality Mexico is one of the most naturally peaceful country I’ve ever visited. Butcher shops are open. Open! Right there on the street! If you ever have the chance to witness somebody cutting up an entire animal (I know that sounds grotesque) it is sheer art.
From colorful homes to unfinished buildings to avoid paying property taxes, one thing that is never missing is electrical lines!
To the people behind the news and media spreading rumors about being shot down and killed by the cartel in Mexico – in my true selfishness I say keep it up. It allows us lovers of the country to really enjoy walking down uncrowded streets, and witnessing families raising their children without threat.
