  • Can an American just walk across the border?

    Best answer: Yes, you need a passport as you are travelling from one country to another.

    If a guard sees you attempting to cross the border then they are supposed to stop you, although they are more focussed on preventing travel in the opposite direction. In theory you could walk across in an unfenced area without encountering a guard but this would usually involve a very long trek through the wilderness.

  • The safest way to get in and outta Mexico ?

    So I am planning a trip to Nuevo Laredo Mexico ,I have the option to fly or to use the bus . So my question is because the cartel wars have been pretty active in Nuevo Laredo lately. What s the best way to cross the border. I was thinking of getting a taxi to get me over the bridge and my family would be waiting on the other side? What do you suggest on making it from point A to point B without falling into a bad situation? .

  • Why are houses, streets and buildings so much nicer on the U.S side of the border with Mexico?

    Best answer: There are generally better rules and regulations here in the US compared to Mexico when it comes to buildings and houses.

    I was in Mexico last month and I'd say the biggest issue for road repairs and maintenance is a "lack" of money. There is money, but it often goes to the wrong people/places.
    Semi trucks are overloaded way beyond what they're meant to support which adds extra wear and tear to the already bad roads. Some roads are cheaply repaired and start falling apart soon after they're "repaired".
    My uncles from my dad's side of the family are truckers and they all pretty much say that they regularly drive with overloaded trucks.

    My grandfather mostly built the house that my mom, aunts, and uncles grew up in some 40+ years ago. However, he really didn't have any regard for design. The house is large and roomy inside, but not particularly well built. There are uneven parts on the floor, poor paint job, etc. I'm pretty sure that they have building codes and requirements for home construction, but I don't think they're very well enforced.

    There's a lot of corruption in Mexico. The Federal Police (Policia Federal or Federales), are notorious being easy to bribe. It isn't uncommon for one of them to stop you for no reason and give you some BS explanation. He is expecting a mordida (bribe) to let you go. Sometimes, they do have a legitimate reason for pulling you over, but again, a bribe can usually set you free.

    With all that being said, Mexico has a lot of really beautiful and interesting places. It has a lot of rich and fascinating culture, history, traditions, towns, cities, villages, landscapes, etc. I went to San Miguel de Allende almost a month ago and it was really cool. I also very much enjoy the food there, specifically the street food. Some of the best food I've ever had was from a small and humble shack on the side of a road. I have a cousin who sells dinner outside of his house. Him and his wife make very good tacos, enchiladas, etc.

  • Is Mexico really that bad to where people cross miles to come to America?

    Best answer: Mexico is a lovely country- if you have money. That's why thousands of people from the US retire to Mexico- it's got a great climate, good food, and inexpensive housing. But there are few job opportunities for poor people with little education. Mexico has been investing in education, so the number of people trying to leave Mexico has declined dramatically. Most of the asylum seekers now are from Honduras and Guatamala, countries that have been torn by government corruption and crime.

  • Who would make a good Batman in your opinion, and what do you think about Robert Patinson being the new one?

    Best answer: Karl Urban.
    He has a no nonsense demeanor.
    He'd be perfect for playing a dark character like batman is.
    Robert Pattinson is too feminine to portray a decent batman

  • BAD EXPERIENCES WITH UBER?

    Best answer: once i got out of the car, stupid woman shouted at me for slamming her door too hard, and then accused me of being rude to her despite me not even talking to her at all, then asked my age cause im so young looking as if thats any of her business, overall im sure she was intimidated by me cause im such a pretty looking fella, she likely expects all dudes to be hairy and ugly looking so it hurt her ego that she so ugly looking compared to me.

  • I want to go to México City, but my mom doesn't want to.?

    Best answer: Mexico City is fabulous! It's really unfortunate that most people in the US don't understand that. I've been there= the only think I was warned about was not to wave down any taxi- take the ones at the official stands. There's incredible cultural sites in M.C. See if you can watch the Anthony Bourdain show from there. Go to see the Diego Rivera murals and the blue house where he lived with Frida Kahlo. There was also a recent article about restaurants in Mexico City-I think in Food and Wine. See if you can find it on their website.
