mzgillis316 - That is VERY exciting.  What are you paying for videography if you don't mind me asking?  I can't decide if I want a video or not.  I mean, obviously I would like one, but budget wise, hmmm....

 

Thanks!! :o)

I've heard a few people concerned, but I'm a little confused...isn't this an incident that could technically happen anywhere?  I don't really understand the connection of people being concerned because it happen in Cancun??

 

Say an apartment building in Houston had a gas leak and caught a whole complex on fire...does this mean everyone should be scared to live in an apartment in Houston???  Maybe I am missing something, but I really don't understand the concern in regards to our weddings at Azul. 

 

Don't get me wrong...it is a tragic event...I'm just having a hard time making the connection.

Jaime,

 

I think if the cartel stuff hadn't been going on, it would be a mute issue.  But, because of that, people are more weary of the area and making it a bigger deal than it needs to be.  I'm not concerned.  It's not stopping me from celebrating!!!

Yeah, that makes sense.  People are just looking for any additional reason to be freaked out.  Not to spark this conversation, but I came across a fellow bride-to-be's explanation that she sends to her concerned guests about drug cartels.  Thought I'd share incase anyone needs to steal it for their guests.  Sorry...I the poster's name...so hopefully she doesn't find this and think I stole it!

 

I'll only post "happy posts" after this...promise :)

 

"The violence in Mexico at this point is a solely motivated by Cartels struggling for power. Their only concern is protecting their territory, drug stashes and smuggling routes through the border. Eliminating their competition means increasi...ng their market share of drugs going over the border. In the past violence against tourists in South/Central America has been caused by rebel groups who felt their interests were not being upheld by the government. Examples are the Shining Path in Peru, FARC in Columbia, and the EZLN in Southern Mexco. These groups purposefully target tourists and innnocent civilians because they wanted to make the government look powerless and cripple the economy by reducing tourism and foreign investment. All this aimed at toppling the current governments so they could rebuild and better represent their own interests
 

That being said the current situation in Mexico differs from these movement because the motivation of the cartels is money. Therefore they will target other drug cartels and anyone else that tries to stop them ie. police, politicians, and the military. In Mexico tourism accounts for more than 14 billion dollars annually and employs millions of people. If the cartels start injuring tourists that puts a lot of money at stake and in turn puts more pressure on them from the United States and the Mexican Government. The last thing in the world that the Mexican Drug Cartels want right now is the United States getting more involved in their Drug war. As long as people avoid border towns, stay in touristy areas, and don't speak out against Mexican Cartels it is my opinion that its as safe as anywhere else. I work in the 5 th most dangerous city in the United States but i have had no problems because I avoid the bad areas. So YES! Im traveling to Mexico just not border towns and im not borrowing money from anyone in a back alley, or taking packages from strangers in airports."

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
