  1. and, when you convert that to mexican pesos and what you can do in Mexico with just one dollar alone… it is way more than that!!

  2. Prior comment demonstrates the trouble USA economy is in. Smug and arrogant to think that our USA dollar will remain strong when all those DOLLARS are going to Mexico to be spent in Mexico for Mexican infrastructure. If things don’t change soon 20 years from now Mexico will be laughing at the value of the US dollar. From what I have seen. At present and on average. The Mexican has a far greater work ethic than the American. That is because of the new “ME” generation that believes they are entitled to everything for nothing. If you pull those bad grades from the average, then we are back on top. USA has an ugly generation coming up and if you live here, you know it’s true.
