While Judy is waiting for Craig......................
I have never been to Mexico nor Central America.
However, we researched the hell out of it before
deciding to continue residence within the USA. Living outside
this country just seemed too messy to me. Didn't
want to fuss with all the details. No regrets.
As far as "LEOs" in Mexico, I am all in favor of armed
civilians which is one reason I like Texas so much
However, it's not so good if they present themselves
as representing the government in some way.
When I worked in Detroit, lots of people were "packin'"
but that was just a survival precaution
