    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For all intents and purposes (language,food, efficiency,etc...) you're in Mexico already.
    Also, if you're not a local, and venture outside of the tourist areas, don't be surprised by brusque treatment. There are some very nice people here, but the town is rather backwards, and the locals are muy defensive and provincial. They are not used to American efficiency. After all, 1/3rd of the town was born across.

    Laredo or Nuevo Laredo?

    Flag sellers in Nuevo Laredo

    Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference. This shot is of one of the street vendors right around September 16th (Mexican Independence Day) but it is the same scene near the 4th of July (US Independence Day) just different flags - they are sold on both sides of the river in this fashion. There are a ton of street vendors - moreso in Nuevo Laredo everyday, in Laredo only when larger events are happening (Washington's birthday, the 4th of July, Jamboozie, etc.)

    He spent his entire lifetime developing his creative and intuitive abilities and teaching others to find their own abilities within themselves.
    Even if you do not agree with his work, belive me, he was a great HUMAN.
