No mas gringos
02 January 2011 | Ensenada, Mexico
Congratulations to the US government and the US media....you've now managed to scare the piss out of the american public and for the most part they now avoid coming to Mexico. The current drug cartel problems occur mostly along a narrow strip of the US Mexico border and unless you are a drug cartel member or a Mexican police officer you have nothing to worry about, and in my opinion are as safe here as you are are in the US....go pick up a newspaper and see how many innocent americans were killed in your city yesterday.
Last night as we strolled downtown Ensenada we were the only americans (gringos) to be seen, the mexican people were VERY happy to see us, we were given happy hour drink deals (2 for 1) without being happy hour, we were given good advice about a great mexican beer (Indio), and every time we started to cross a street the drivers would slam on their brakes and wave us across.
As we were standing in Hussongs last night and I was looking around at all the friendly mexican people I thought to myself....you know this place is actually a lot nicer WITHOUT all the obnoxious americans messing it up....in my opinion.
