Ciudad Juárez Warnings and Dangers: 3 reviews and 0 photos
The local people here are of a special ilk. I dont know how else to describe them. Please note that I am not talking about all of the people that live in this hole, only 99% of them.
The thing that I noticed is that when I would ask for directions, some of the responses that I recieved were not only in perfect English (slang included) but in feet and miles. This struck me as odd because Mexico uses the metric system. After investigating, I found out that a lot of the locals are actually products of the US but for some legal reasons the people had to come back to Mexico as to avoid jail in the US.
What it comes down to is a lot of the people that are trying to scam you were doing something in the US and should have gone to jail, but because of their heritage they went back to their own country to live as to get a second chance.
