in mexico – searching for “bad hombres”
Mr. Trump, the president of the United States, warned of “bad hombres” coming from Mexican. The ones bringing the drugs, rape, crime. His caveat was that he assumed that some were “good people”
On Inauguration Day we exited the United States to head to Mexico. I had made a solemn pledge to leave the US if Trump was elected president. In full disclosure, I made a solemn pledge to leave the US if Hillary Clinton was elected president. A no lose proposition.
I have nothing but fondness for Mexico. I have traveled widely in the country, but not widely enough. My daughters studied in Cuernavaca. Much of the American southwest was Spanish/Mexican and we incorporate their food, customs and culture into the mosaic that is America.
I do not like the demonizing of any peoples, races or groups. It is mean and mindless.
So, I am here in Mexico in search of bad hombres and good experiences. My seasons in Saigon has ended; now it is a new adventure!
