Ok, let's make this clear:
As far as I get, this Mexico meet-up is being done so mexican newgrounders can hang around a while and know each other. Of course people from other countries can come, but that would be pretty unlikely. So, I guess there's no problem. Mexican people know Mexico is not the dangerous place the USA News shows you it is. I've been living here all my life and had never been kidnapped, robbed or anything like that. Only morons would go to those dangerous places where you can actually be in troubles, and we are clearly not going to plan a meet-up on a place like that. So please, please, if you are just coming up to this thread to make racist jokes about mexicans, please get out and stop botherin. Us mexicans have exactly the same rights as anyone else to be respected and to do meet-ups if we fucking feel like to.
I'm not trying to be agressive with anyone but sometimes people can just make me nuts. Peace.
Thats right, I believe you meant place like ciudad Juarez, and parts of mexico city like Iztapalapa, Ciudad Neza and so on. Well my foreign peers, let me tell you one thing, I am worried about your security, and as well I am aware of which places are "the wrong end of town", Its not like theres a guy wanting to rob you everywhere. Like most jobs, thieves follow a schedule, and are restricted to certain areas. Consider that such economic situation that pushes you to rob may restrict you from bribing cops, therefore they become your enemies. So as a mugger, you would not roam the areas where cops are likely to patrol, you would be "working" somewhere where your collegues can give you some back up hidding you or whatsoever.
Thats basically your average thief pattern. But if you are interested on a satire of daily life in mexico city, watch the CCC city series here on newgrounds. BTW I think I should ask Vinnie Veritas to come.
