Ah… Mexico! Land of beautiful landscapes, beaches, mountains and … incompetent people running the government.
In the latest example of the train wreck the current administration is, the Website to promote tourism to Mexico (Visitmexico.com) has been translated into English or, rather, into what the Tourism Office thinks it’s the English language.
Not only an automatic translator was use to turn Guerrero into Warrier, but you can find other jewels including: Progress, Yucatán; Coal Village, State of Mexico and Four Ciénagas, Coahuila.
There are also other more cryptic ones, like “Juniper” or “Jumpsuit” to describe places I cannot even begin to imagine.
JFC! Can this administration get something right for once?
According to the most recent survey coming out from the land obsessed with surveys, 72% of Americans think Mexico is unsafe, and not because they fear they will go into a cardiac arrest for gulping down tons of cheap tequila in Cancún. They are mostly concerned about being shot by some druglord as soon as they set foot at the airport.
But weary Americans should not despair, and instead thank the nation’s undocumented and documented Hispanic immigrants for the latest trend in U.S. tourism: Latin American cultural immersion trips in the comfort of your own city.
¡Sí, señor! Latinos are using the neighborhoods we’ve taken away from gringos to lurethem back, and invite them to get a taste of our fun, dance, food and drink-filled culture. And no, you don’t need to get a passport, nor take a malaria pill. And -more importantly- chances of surviving are actually at a healthy 95%
So, what are you waiting for? Come enjoy U.S. Latin America without the dangers and annoyances of the real Latin America.
Now that the U.S. State Department has issued a travel alert warning people about the dangers of going to Mexico, thousands of reckless American teenagers are pondering their options: To go or not to go to Cancún for their spring break and terrorize the locals with their binge drinking and wet T-shirt parties.
But while many are already considering alternative destinations, Minnesotan teens seem to be much more adventurous:
“I read that the main problems are alcohol and the club scene — which pretty much sums up my spring break,”a sophmore told Minnesota’s Star Tribune.
