Although Mexico certainly has very dangerous spots, it’s not all that terrible. I grew up in El Paso, TX. Ciudad Juárez is just over the border. The city was nearly a twin to El Paso — still is to some degree. It’s a large city with rich tradition and history. Back in 2010, it was recognized as one of the most violent cities in the world. I’m sure you can agree with me in saying that it’s so unfortunate to see a place, with so much charm and beautiful culture, always painted as vicious and cold.
