I am in Ensenada and cant be happier, food taste better especially the fruit and veggies, beer and food are cheap, healthcare is cheap, gas is cheap,
beaches are empty, beach front and penthouses are crazy cheap and per capita it is less violent than the U.S. I do get the gringo price for things
but even then it is still cheaper than the US, and if I have my girlfriend with me and not talk I get the real price which is great.
Now I have had to pay off the police one night, not to go to the station and pay a failure to fully stop at a stop sign, a 10 dollar ticket, I gave
the police officer 15 so I could go home. (since I am gringo they make you pay it then and there so you do not split without paying the ticket after
vacation.) I do not go out after 1-2 am but that is the same as I lived in the US so it is no different. I have had equally bad experiences with
mugging in both countries and trust me they take your money the same way......
Don't leave though because of what someone else did but go to find happiness, someone will always do something you do not agree with where ever you
live......Even where I live there is an old man that loves his speedos, I am not leaving here because of it, although as a gag we gave him some
swimming/surfer trunks for a present for Christmas, hopefully he will use them this season, lol
