On the street in Juarez this morning

I often stop through Juarez – not with groups but when I am on my own. I do this for several reasons. Sometimes I have business here. This is where I get my visa renewed. The office is at the Cordova/ Bridge of the Americas. Sometimes I am with Tarahumara runners and we are working […]

Open the Door and Let em In!

I saw this article by Rana Foroohar on immigration reform in Time the other day and it seems to make perfect sense to me–based on my observations in Mexico and around the border. Here are my non-political observations: the border areas seem to be quite safe for gringos the flow of people toward the US […]

The Birth of the Margarita- Safely

I travel all over Chihuahua as we treat people to our Copper Canyon train trips. Having studied and experienced he various ways of getting in and out of Copper Canyon I have opted out of other options companies use to save money or fill their own hotels. The best way is in and out of […]

Is Mexico Safe?

Walk Across Juarez #3: This Great Distance

As the Donkey Plays the Flute There is this expression for things done haphazardly or serendipitously in Mexico- as the donkey plays the flute. Alfredo mutters this expression as we head back to the bridge to “begin” the walk. I really have no plan and want to just amble around and have a bunch of […]

Walk Across Juarez #2: Across the Bridge

Two weeks before the walk My right hand guide in Copper Canyon, Alfredo Murillo, lives in Chihuahua and is very familiar with Juarez and the situation there. I email him of my plans and ask for his input. I ask him if he could meet me at the El Paso airport and give me a […]

Walk Across Juarez #1: Anticipation

Walk Across What? Juarez has to be the LAST place any sane person would chose to even go to, let alone walk across. Most people assume that my body will end up filled with bullets, decapitated, and hung from some bridge with a scrawled cartel note tied to it. And that was what I thought […]

This Solitary Gringo Will Walk Across Juarez

Is it safe for tourists in Mexico now? Well our experience is that it is and while there are concerns, even northern Mexico is much safer than other tourist destinations people use now- such as South Africa and Beliz. Still during this period, Europeans, Australians, Canadians and of course Mexicans are traveling extemsively in the […]
