    It appears that no visitor to Mexico is safe. This week a group of touriists on a land trip from a cruise ship were robbed at gunpoint. My advice is KEEP AWAY FROM THERE!

    Pretty shocking. It's so tragic, what's going on there. Makes the Wild West of the old days look almost innocent by comparison.
    Genuine ersatz classical listener since 1981.

    A recent NY Times article regarding conductor Rodolfo Cazares and family kidnapping.

    It's a pity that Cazarés is still a Mexican citizen. There is really nothing diplomatically that Germany can do.
