Arizona, The Land of Wonder… I Wonder How Long I Could Go Without Being Arrested

According to the state’s official tourism visitor guide, Arizona is a Land of Wonder; a place where you can plan a “Grand” vacation filled with fun activities including hiking, biking, rafting and even mule-riding.

What I find most fascinating, though, is the fact that the guide highlights the state’s proximity to Mexico, and actually encourages tourists to visit Mexico:

“Mexico boasts cultural festivals, heritage areas, colonial towns, pre-Colombian history such as Mayan and Aztec ruins, and much more. […] Tourists can take advantage of the great beaches, archeological zones, music, art, food, and cultural experiences.”

Ah…. so now I finally get it!

What this whole thing means is: If you want to see Mexicans, or anything related to Mexico’s culture or heritage, you’ll be better off taking a car and cross the border; chances are you will not see any of that around here anymore.

[Oh, and please don’t worry; Mexican cops are not into racial-profiling. They are equal opportunity shooters.]

  1. Well, if I want to see Mexican culture I usually go south of the border regardless of the laws. After all, the tortillas do taste better out there. And of course they are going to highlight the proximity to Mexico; we are a border state it’s only obvious. Another thing to remember is that we can’t encourage or force anybody to go anywhere; ultimately it’s the tourist decision where they spend their hard earned money. Mexican or any other race cops wouldn’t appreciate your comment; after all they are on the frontline of the increased violence spewing over from Mexico.
