In the minds of most people, Mexico is usually seen as a beach resort destination or a corrupt narco-state run by drug lords.
However, the majority of people don’t know the truth about Mexico, its culture, and its people.
For example, in Mexico, nobody actually eats burritos Chipotle-style or filled with rice (I know that in northern Mexico burritos are popular, however, I meant burritos from US fast food chains).
Not only that, most authentic Mexican food is not very spicy or hot – it’s actually sour due to a number of limes (in Spanish simply called lemons).
The term ‘third world’ was invented during the Cold War as one of three geopolitical divisions of alignment.
Countries aligned with the US were considered “first world”, those aligned with the Soviet Union were “ the second world”, and non-aligned countries were “ the third world”.
The place is actually safer than some of the big cities in America or even Europe.
Of course, bad things happen like anywhere else in the world, but in Mexico most homicides happen between the drug gangs, not regular citizens.

Everyone seems to love Mexican food, so much so that it was recently classified as an irreplaceable part of the cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO.
Although, outside of Mexico what people refer to as “Mexican food” is more often than not actually Tex-Mex.
It can be confusing because the Mexico City metropolitan area lies within DF and parts of the State of Mexico.
