Mexico

 

In January 2002 I went to Poza Rica, Mexico, where I taught English for one year. I left that December for Edmonton and spent two months in -20 weather. Nice people, great food, beautiful scenery, and a pro-fun culture. I often wonder why I left.

If You Go: Ensenada
I went back to Mexico for a day trip in July 2008. Ensenada wasn't the same as Veracruz and I almost regret going. The locals are jaded by the hordes of California tourists and it's expensive by Mexican standards. Otherwise, if you stay away from the border towns, tourists are generally immune from the recent drug violence in the country.
