You can see across the river into Mexico when you're driving through El Paso. The difference is night and day. On the right side there's a Courtyard Marriot and a strip mall with a Walmart then across the river you got a Mexican barrio. No KandB houses with white stucco but you might see the guy who built your KandB house staring back at you. Move over 5 miles and you can probably film a commercial with Sally Struthers and little Ynez with her big brown eyes making a plea to help feed the children. I think I've seen worse in Asia though. These guys are pretty fortunate, they're living on some solid hills. Try living in a shack on a humongous shifting pile of acres of garbage.
