I think it is a given that Mexico may not be the safest country to visit. Most of us know that from the start but decide to come here anyway. In many respects Mexico offers its people more personal liberty than in the US, but for that freedom one must accept the chaos that accompanies it. It is a trade-off for the individual to weigh its merits.
Reality does not always look like rosy cantera buildings hung with hot-pink bugambilia; reality sometimes looks like a severed human head stuffed into a styrofoam cooler.
IŽll stick my neck out and offer without proven statistics that it is about a million times more likely one would experience the pink cantera rather than the severed head. However, if severed heads and faces sewn onto soccer balls were open as public exhibits I believe those attractions would find their own niche for tourism. I would not suggest Morelia do such, but it could give quite an economic boost to some small pueblo that has fallen on hard times. If that is a tad too gory then I might suggest a parade of rateros around the townŽs glorietta could make for a heart-warming attraction.
