for knowing your stuff and schooling newbies around here - Alx.

I've just made quick researches.

You're your own boss, but I would advise you to not go there. The offer, as far as commodities and money, is good for a reason.................

Here, a quote from a rpofessor working there :

''I have advised my student that I shall not give classes anymore during evenings, because I want to find my family alive and well.''

-Rodriguez, a law professor

Take the job. I live in Juarez and can tell you that the violence has gone down considerably. Buy a home in El Paso and you'll be fine.

The plus side would be the chance to live and work in Mexico, to travel the US with ease and hopefully score some strange.

As my e-homies, what advice?
Stay out of the boarder towns. If you're an idiot, by all means go. Border towns are dangerous dude

I have decided to hold off for the moment. Partially cos I applied for a job in Honduras and got good feedback. Its easy to get a job in Latin America it seems. I will finish my research in 18 months and then definitely have that adventure.

The Honduras job is in Tegucigalpa. Its teaching secondary school and pays just $800/month. Too low for me to take it.

The kid from Juarez a few posts up, is it as bad as we read in the news?

Sorry for the delay. My aunt died and I had family stuff to do.

As for Juarez, turned down the offer. Stuff like this is why:

You turned away the biggest adventure in your life. Your chance to not be mediocre.

From the gov's website.

http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p...w/tw_5440.html

Quote:
Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua: The situation in the state of Chihuahua, specifically Ciudad Juarez, is of special concern. Ciudad Juarez has the highest murder rate in Mexico. Mexican authorities report that more than 3,100 people were killed in Ciudad Juarez in 2010. Three persons associated with the Consulate General were murdered in March, 2010. You should defer non-essential travel to Ciudad Juarez and to the Guadalupe Bravo area southeast of Ciudad Juarez. U.S. citizens should also defer non-essential travel to the northwest quarter of the state of Chihuahua. From the United States, these areas are often reached through the Columbus, NM, and Fabens and Fort Han****, TX, ports-of-entry. In both areas, U.S. citizens have been victims of narcotics-related violence. There have been incidents of narcotics-related violence in the vicinity of the Copper Canyon in Chihuahua.
Stay away, bro. Sh*t is crazy over there

Long story short, my boss traveled to Mexico for her dad's funeral. At the funeral she is approached by a man who asked to confirm her identity. The guy then informed her that they had extensive knowledge about her and her extended family living in the states.

CRAZY.
