Observation: Mexicans are so friendly!

When is the last time you walked down the street in the U.S. and a complete stranger looked you in the eye and said “Good day”? Probably been a while, hasn’t it? Well here in Mexico, it happens all the time. In stores, on the street, and in restaurants, people exchange courtesies and sound completely sincere doing so. It also seems that people make the time not only for these courtesies, but also expect that these exchanges will lead to more extended conversations, often resulting in groups of people sitting in the shade somewhere along the street and chatting. All part of the more relaxed pace of life in Mexico. Maybe that’s where the RVers get their chattiness?
