It appears to me that many gringos here think everybody in Mexico is going to be aiming at them because they are special

We are special!!! We are "outsiders" that travel and enjoy the many attributes that Mexico has to offer. We get stared at a lot, we sometimes get Gringo prices, and sometimes we are targeted by unscrupulous folks! That is a small price to pay for the enjoyment we get from visiting Mexico. Of course, my house is for sale and I will moving to and living in Mexico when I am not traveling in other parts of the world. I guess I won't be a visitor or an "outsider" and more! Will I still be special?
