A trip to Mexico
Since we are so close to the border we decided to make a little day trip to Mexico to see what its like. I don't think either of us were prepared for the crazy harrassment in the border shopping district. We couldn't walk 10 feet without getting stopped. "Come visit my store!" "What are you shopping for?" "Will you call my wife in the US for me?" And "Hello, rich Americans!" We got overwhelmed very quickly and sought a quiet place to dine and sit for a while. We found a nice restaurant and had dessert and drinks and then got in the line to head back to the states. I don't think they could understand that some Americans want to visit Mexico without shopping! I'm sure we'll visit Mexico again but now we know the border town area is not our forte.
