Just a little heads up if you are traveling to Mexico. Be aware at all times. The gangs are really involved in a civil war with each other and its all over. I was in the boondocks near Zamora as well as in the city of Guadalajara and saw and heard evidence of shootings, homes surrounded with razor wire and many had electrified defenses. I was in Moreila shopping when 21 were shot and killed on the streets. Normal events were surrounded with gun bearing guards as well as many on the streets in the cities. So pay attention and keep your eyes open at all times.
