NEVER saw so many dentists and pharmacy on one block. Texas friends told me it was safe to get your teeth done here. Most of them come here because it is so much cheaper than the state's. Medications were a lot cheaper too. Little kids were at the edge of the bridge begging for money. I took extra cash just for that reason. It is clearly very poor. Off the main road it become even more clear how poor this country is. I can see why they all want to get to the United States. I did feel safe. My friend said it was as safe as any big city in the U.S.
