Boycott them maybe that will get their attention. Go to Florida or Alabama they have nice beaches.

I must say when I was in California I loved the beaches and the desert... I donít think I will ever go there again and that is due to the way it is there... Some ruin it for all. Sad because the land and ocean are fine...

It once wasn't like it is now, you could go down there and have a good time. That all seemed to change
at around the mid 1970s. Some folks still head down there to see the doctors and dentist. But they only go
to that one place and arrange transportation back and forth from El Paso.

If you can pay them they do offer some good medical care at a very reasonable price.

Been to Cozumel nothing there I want to experience again. Cops were walking with machine guns and some buildings had guards with guns on the roofs.

most all of mexico used to be a great place to go and spend time.
great inland fresh water fishing and salt water fishing. great hunting
for their puny deer and numerous whitewing doves. cheap food and
meds and drinks.

these days i would hardly even consider getting close to the border
even on this side. the last time i hunted anywhere close down that
way, we had to park the RV's inside a high fence barbed-wire topped
enclosure that got locked up at night with a padlock and chain.
the land owner went everywhere with a sidearm, and usually a rifle
and shotgun. he wouldn't leave the house with his wife alone there.
when you went out to your hunting spot, someone would cover for
you while you looked in your blind as if you were cops entering a
drug house. there might well be a border jumper or two asleep inside
that had to be run out like rats in a shed.

NO THANK YOU

What's sad Ranger is that Juarez once had the finest hospital in the area, even better than the one in El Paso.
But that was back in the 1960s. They even had a good nursing school with English and Spanish classes.
I bet they don't anymore.

I went to Tijuana once back in 1999 or so. My late wife used to go there all the time when she lived in L.A. It was the first time I'd been out of the country, and did not need a passport then.



Later on in life Lori and I went on a cruise that took us to somewhere close to the Yucatan peninsula.
We saw some Mayan ruins and a lot of iguianas.

the last time i was in that neck of the woods ( a LONG time ago )
the "bad" part of town had got much bigger than the "good" part
of town. most of the shacks were made from pallets and cardboard
that they had dug out of the dump, and chickens and dogs and
goats roamed freely in and out of the "houses" and pooped and
peed wherever and whenever they felt like it just like animals do.
just as the people did. and they didn't have any qualms about dropping
their drawers or hiking up their skirt to relieve themselves wherever
they happened to be standing at the time. nobody thought anything
of it or gave it a second glance.
i never could figure someone who washed their clothes and bathed in
a piddly little creek or water hole one minute, then did a big bowel
movement or emptied their bladder in that same bit of water the
next moment. sad part is they still act that way here
