Hey, my very Mexican mom does send out cards or notes of gratitude. I know plenty of Mexicans who do - it is this 2nd generation Chicana that doesn't :(
To Joaquinnosoy - I did what the Mexican suggested. I moved from the great cosmopolitan city of Chicago to a border town. Why? To work with Latinos (well, really Mexicanos) that are 90% percent of the population rather than be pigeon-holed. Is it totally Mexicano? Of course not - just like the US, every region has its flavor and this border town has its own and so does every pueblito in Mexico. I have learned a lot, though - like, I can take culture shock standing up :). I liked it so much, I ended up staying here & even blog about it - check it out www.quefregados.com.
FYI - Mexico is not the best place to move to right now cuz by the sound of it, you would make a perfect target for a cartel that will want to take your American parents' life savings after they kidnap you. I can hear the gunshots in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico from my house, not the safest place to be right now.
