Mexico Welcomes Visitors with Open Arms

September 21, 2010



I am Canadian and have spent the last five winters in Barra de Navidad, Jalisco. I agree with David Yett's letter to the editor and all the other comments about living in Mexico. I too have experienced the incredible kindness, generosity and warmth of the Mexican people.

There is a Mexican advertising campaign that says that you not only visit Mexico but "you are part of it" - and it is true. I have been to weddings and fiestas, been part of parades, have been invited into a Mexican home in the barrio for Christmas dinner and have been treated like part of the family. Many Mexicans are ready to drop what they are doing in order to show you around and are proud of their work and their families.

Because of my health I drive to Mexico and cross the U.S. border just North of Detroit. Last Autumn the U.S Customs and Immigration officer asked me if I was comfortable going to Mexico. I asked why he would wonder about that. He said it was because of "all the things that are going on there!" (meaning the reports of violence) I looked him in the eye and asked him if he had been to Detroit lately...
