When you turn on the news today, you are bombarded with negative images of Mexico. With all of the bad press that Mexico has been receiving about the drug wars, immigration, etc, you would think that nothing positive is happening in the country.
That's where The Mexico Report comes in. Susie Albin-Najera has created a wonderful blog that focuses on "Communicating a Positive Image About Mexico". Her blog highlights places to travel, fabulous resorts, events, food, charities, and much more.
I'm often asked by family and friends if I'm scared to live here and if I feel unsafe. My answer? No. There is a great saying in Spanish that I love - "el que nada debe, nada teme" which would translate to "he who does nothing wrong, has nothing to fear". While I'm not denying the narcoviolence, I'm saying that Mexico is much more than that. Can you imagine if the international news only covered the violence in our major cities? Murders, rapes, and school shootings? Everyone would be terrified to go to the US!
I invite you to celebrate the positive today and check out The Mexico Report!
