What You’ve Been Missing: Good News on Mexico

4 Jun

I am always on the hunt for good news about Mexico and the Americas. Something to distract me from titles like, “Border Bloodshed” and the “Immigration Problem”. If you dare to focus on Mexico in a positive way, does that make you crazy?

A friend of mine at ProMéxico, shared a Facebook page with me called, México Today. Thanks to a post on their page, I armchair traveled to the Yucatan Peninsula from the comfort of my desk, drinking my morning coffee.

México Today gives you something hard to come by: good news and an insiders perspective on what you’re missing in Mexico.

Their call to action: “…tell Mexico’s stories as part of a vibrant community of Mexico enthusiasts. Whether you’re an art and travel guru or intrigued by infrastructure and the economy, share your viewpoint here.

I’m hooked. After getting a dose of reality from my Google Alert “Mexico, binational” (try it yourself), I log onto México Today to get in touch (and go a little crazy) with the country’s good side.

Try listening to Gnarles Barkley’s song “Crazy” while checking out the site…

Yeah, I was out of touch.

But it wasn’t because I didn’t know enough.

I just knew too much…

Does that make me crazy? Possibly…

    Nice post! What is interesting about all the over sensationalized media stories on Mexico’s violence is that tourism has increased by 8% this year. So, it is frustrating to read so many negative stories about Mexico being dangerous when the violence is generally contained in only a few states. I think a good point to make is “should people stop traveling to Florida because of the violence in Oakland, California?” Thanks again for the post. I have re-blogged this over at http://mexicosecurity.org/ please stop by and leave a comment, I would love to get your incite!

    Thanks!

    […] Another blogger reporting on positive news stories from Mexico. I like this post because blogger “MATT” seems to be honestly concerned  for Mexico’s reputation. It is refreshing to read the stories of average citizens (Americans or Mexican) experiencing Mexico away from popular news media. Please feel free to post a comment concerning your experiences in Mexico. Have you traveled to Mexico recently? I am always on the hunt for good news about Mexico and the Americas. Something to distract me from titles like, “Border Bloodshed” and the “Immigration Problem”. If you dare to focus on Mexico in a positive way, does that make you crazy?
