1. Clean Water. I can sing in the shower as much as I want and not worry. I can stick my toothbrush under the faucet and not freak out afterwards. I can wash my veggies in my kitchen sink. All of these things were not allowed for us in Mexico. Their water is different than ours, and, well, makes you sick.
disclaimer: this is not me2. Government. Alright, so there are a lot of things I don't agree with in our politics. However, the poor in Mexico are really destitute. They make our poverty line look like gold. I'm thankful for the standard of living here.
3. Toilets. If you've ever been in Mexico (and I don't mean at a resort), then you know you can't flush the toilet paper. Their system is not strong enough to handle it. So, right beside you there is a trash can, for, well, the soiled stuff. It makes for an interesting smell in even the nicest restrooms.
This is so not how the toilets look in Mexico, but it is very Mexican!
4. Grass. In many parts of Mexico, there is vegetation. However, that is not the norm. Many times you will see people watering their yards of dirt, which looks a bit ridiculous because you know nothing is going to grow there. That is until you realize they're just trying to keep the dirt and dust on the ground instead of getting picked up by the wind. Needless to say, greenery is much prettier. I realize that you all in Arizona and lower Texas may not feel included, and I am sorry. But I love my Carolina greenery.
These may be silly, but oh so true. God bless America. I love my home.
