First of all, I'm all geeked out. We gave a interview to media from Monterrey Mexico, to be view over there on Sunday. I don't know who did more interviewing, me or them. I wanted to know their opinion of Detroit.
I asked them what there view of Detroit was, and they were surprised that the city was not as bad as they heard. They kept saying that everyone they spoke with were freindly. They understood that Detroit is a industrial city as Monterrey is, and we're going thru hard times. All in all they left the shop with a positive view, which left me with a huge smile. They kept saying we want to see snow,,,I told them to wait 24 hours or so .

Monterrey in known as the "Detroit of Mexico". If you want to see industrialism run amuck that is the place to see.

No wonder Monterrey likes Detroit, they've got all of our damn jobs.

Pay rates: $1.00 USD per hour, a free lunch, clean uniform, and a ride to work. Now that's livin'. So much for Vicente Fox Family Wage jobs.

jjaba, Proudly Westside.

I met Diego Rivera's grandson downtown 2 months ago and he asked me why I was moving to Detroit. I told him that I felt it was a real representation of America, old and new, both beautiful and ravaged, much like his own place of residence, Mexico City. He smiled, shook my hand and said, "That's why I keep coming back. I love it here."

Monterrey is the richest city in Mexico, and is probably not far behind Detroit in terms of dollars. It is also home to a thriving technology sector, has great parks, and is a very clean, nice place to visit.
