Crime seems to be picking up due to the economic issues, and a lot of the building has stopped.

It is still a nice place though, and it is a great trip if you are looking for fun in the desert!

As for jobs I suggest looking for teaching jobs. There always seemed to be a need for English teachers, and when I was a kid there all of the English teachers seemed to be from abroad(Mostly New Zealand or the UK though). If you are a teacher I highly recommend applying for the westminster school. I went there, and it was awesome. It is a British type of school, and they hire many foreigners

Actually Americans are the main ones designing those buildings.
