What a shame that the nation of Mexico cannot produce drinkable water!! Unbelievable really but quite true.

It's a nation blessed with lots of natural resources and millions of delightful, hardworking people, but cursed by corrupt and inefficient government. Little wonder than millions of them seek a better life here!

I had a friend who almost died from Amoebic dysentery he got In Mexico City. He was in a hospital on IV drip for 2.5 weeks. Took him more than a year to fully recover. So it can be much more serious than mere "Montezuma's revenge."

When in Mexico, I never drink anything but beer, and I eat no salads.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
