I recently lived in Brownsville, Texas if yall do not know where that is at I could walk five minutes from the apartment I lived in and cross the border...provided I get through the checkpoint. When I think of Tacos I think of a hard shell meat and cheese food item. When I order authentic tacos I basically get a tortilla with cowtongue and some cheese I have never tried before...I have to say I love my American Tacos. But I did learn a lot about true Hispanics. I am going to go back down to see some friends but I would prefer not to stay that close to the border, truth is if you live on a border town especially in Texas it is bad, especially for a little city white boy like myself.

I love mexico, I'm very close to Tijuana Mexico, and its not as bad as it use to be. Crime has definitely calmed down and its way more tourist friendly. Nice place to get cheap deals on Lobster, candy, fireworks, booze, and gifts! The beaches are better then some parts of southern CA.

Nothing beats 3 (authentic) carne asada tacos for $1 and fine class entertainment like drinking games and zebra donkey photos.

I LOVE Mexico, minus the food.


Some of my greatest memories are from partying in Mexico

I've never seen a harder working people do a job for less money than what lazy people do half-assed for more.

My fondest memories as a child are going to visit my family in Mexico. My grandparents live in a small town called Magueyes located in Tamaulipas near Ciudad Victoria, and it is so beautiful. The local plaza was our hangout place for all the kids in the town. We would buy cheap candy and fireworks, and light them up at night. During the day when my uncle had free time, he would drive us to a nearby river and we would play there. What was funny is the stereotype of the whole family packing in one vehicle was true in our case. All the kids would go in the back of the truck and we would all be taken to the river to play.

As a kid, and still to this day I have never been a big meat consumer. As probably most people know Mexican food uses a lot of meat, and it was difficult for me to eat most of the dishes they made at my grandparent's house. Although nothing could beat my aunt's homemade empanadas de calabaza. They were so good, I was always ready to eat that.

I know that many people look down on Mexico and the people, but I love it. When people ask my race I proudly say I'm Hispanic. Some of the people I admire the most come from Mexico. They are Frida Kahlo and Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.

Right now though it's pretty tough to go back to Mexico and visit from all the violence and drug cartel that is controlling the streets right now, but I have faith that one day Mexico will go back to what it was before.

It's surprising to find someone on here that lived in Brownsville. I live an hour and a half away from there.

Yeah it's pretty bad living near the border with all the violence that is going on in Mexico right now, so I'm glad you don't live close to there anymore. Although I have to ask did you visit the South Padre island while living in Brownsville?

O yes I went there a lot, it was only 30 min drive away. So I visited frequently, I did forget to put that..lol. It was very refreshing to be close to the beach again. So which town/city do you live in if you do not mind me asking? you can pm me if you like.

I've been to Distrito Federal and Puebla. Had a great time at both locations. You just gotta enjoy the place, and their culture. I think when you go to a tourist attraction location you have a different experience in Mexico. But if you go with a friend who is from Mexico you also get a very different experience. It all depends where you go, but now you have to be careful of what place you visit because Mexico has been having problems of their own.

I have never been to Mexico, and I don't have much desire to nor am I even allowed. But I've lived in CA multiple times and have had several neighbors from Mexico and they were indistinguishable from anybody else... just fun-loving, awesome, friendly people. Or just as crummy as anybody else too, depending on how you see it and who the individual is.

As a country though, I see them as bothersome neighbors. Mainly for security reasons, but also because said security reasons are a distraction, and it gives our "good ol' gun-totin' 'murrican boys" a pseudo-legitimized voice in our country. Yeehaw.

I like this Robusta coffee which is from Mexico. Why does everybody hate on Robusta beans, anyway? They have more caffeine and that's what counts.
