First off, I want to thank all of you here on TA for advices/reviews etc. I am very excited about my first trip to PV on April 23-29. I know many first-timers have questions/concerns about the safety issue in PV, but this community have helped me a lot. I feel very confident (and excited!) with my choice of going to PV, mostly because of what I read here and researched.
Moving forward, I am slightly annoyed of all the comments I received from friends and families in regards to the violence in Mexico. I know they are just concern for my safety. It bugs me on many levels. Especially how its the media who portrays this. I'm not saying violence does not exist, its just the magnitude of it. Also, on how gullible people are to listen to everything they hear. Then again, I do not blame them. This has however, made me think twice about everything I hear.
So, how do you guys deal with friends and family when they voice their opinions about Mexico?
2 more weeks whoo hoo! Btw this is my first time traveling to anywhere hehe =)
