I don't go to Chicago because some areas are like that (similar, at least). We'll go to the museums and such, but there are definitely areas to avoid. Do you know of any "safe" areas along the coasts of Mexico, or is it all the same across the entire country when it comes to kidnapping and running into the cartel? I'm going to guess that they're everywhere?
I was just in Chicago last week. First time there. I expected ghetto, and it was probably the cleanest city I've ever been to. Downtown at least. Venturing out of the downtown gets a little more run down but always felt safe. I know there are bad areas, but that's like anywhere. I fully expected to hate Chicago and thought everything about it would feel dangerous and I had the exact opposite impression once I was there.

I guess Mexico can be similar. I would never want to travel or live in Mexico at the moment - but that is probably naive. There are other countries that are very friendly to expats. Costa Rica, Belize, etc.

I really am interested mostly in Central American countries. It's just that their requirements for residency are ridiculous. It's so easy to immigrate to the USA in comparison to immigrating to these other countries. We don't require people to have $25,000 in a bank account, or require them to open a business that only employs the natives of our country. It's so fricking easy to get into the US, but not the other way around.

Heres your basic Tampa Bay weather forecast =
https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l...+USFL0481:1:US
There will be little change till November or December.
Daily afternoon thunderstorms just add to the humidity.
As for ease of entry to the country? its in the cultural nature of America to welcome those less fortunate from other countries. Remember this?

Horribly high and stifling uncomfortable humidity is a good thing actually because it keeps the general populace away. This is not a bad thing.

Oh sure. I'm not complaining about how easy it is to get into our country; I'm complaining about how hard it is to get out. Lol.

Sounds like a complaint.......thought you'd like humidity and heat per another thread comment.

Yes Jambo, that weather forecast is it until September/October. By then the dry season will be in so wont rain as much in Nov/Dec but 90f is quite possible.

Immigration is fine. So long as it is done legally with the proper controls in place.

It isnt supposed to be a "free for all".

It's been very humid here for a while, though not super hot. After waxing my armpits yesterday in this soup, I remembered one of the main reasons I don't like high humidity. Lol. Seriously, though, I really might have to find a drier climate because of that. I don't like having to be in A/C, and it's really hard to wax when the air is so thick. That may sound like a superficial reason to dislike humidity, but it's actually just a practical consideration. It's hard to do things like that with your skin when it's sticky. Dang it.

I really think you will be happier out west somewhere. If you don't like humidity, you really will not like it here. Personally I think Albuquerque is a nice city - maybe give it a look?
