Mexico vs. the United States
For those who have never physically gone to Mexico, it can seem like a scary and dangerous place. In all honesty, Jordan and I thought those things might be true, too (before traveling in Mexico).

We went against our family’s warnings to stay out of the country and started traveling in Mexico to see for ourselves. It wasn’t long before we realized that the US news stations all but lied to us. We aren’t going to sit here and say that there’s no violence or danger at all; it’s just nothing like what the media leads you to believe.
There is just SO MUCH to love about Mexico. Moreover, after living in the country for over a year, it opened our eyes to all the flaws of life in the United States.
