The thread about unspoiled places got me thinking about Mexico. Such an awesome place, but there's trouble...right? The last time I went, ALL the cops in Tijuana province were on leave and they were testing there guns to see how many matched drug murders...so far they were up to about 300. We were on our way to Rosarito, and my Mexican amiga said, "Roll up your window and lock your door." "Veronica...we're doing 70." "Just do it." A friend of mine was put in jail there for being in a car accident. It seems that causing an accident is a crime. The cops came and said, "A crime has occurred here. We're going to put both parties in jail until we figure out who is responsible." On an almost quaint level, my same amiga tells me she was driving and there were some orange cones across the road with a space in the middle big enough to drive through, so she did. Pretty soon...a few cops...20 bucks and she was on her way. It seems like the country is half narcos and half cleptocracy. Where is the cool place to go in Mexico? And I don't mean tourist places.
