Don’t just take my word for it. Cancun Canuck has pointed me in the direction of many other fellow Mexico bloggers who have weighed in on this topic (I’ve been behind in my blog reading, stupid work!):
The cynics among you might think that because some of our businesses rely upon tourism that this is why we feel the need to address this issue, but you’d be wrong. Many of us are retirees or workers whose businesses have nothing to do with the tourist trade, and in general we are just a group of like-minded people who have chosen to live a life different from that in which we were raised. Life in Mexico may not be everyone’s choice, but it is obviously ours, and I for one don’t take kindly to people talking shit about my adopted country.
