Great insights. To be more specific we will be in an urban area of Mexico. Pretty touristy, so a lot of Americans and Europeans around. I suspect that will help somewhat. Traveled enough internationally to be sensitive to appearance. No fancy jewelry, watch or clothes. The same confident demeanor that holds us in good stead here at home, seems to carry over to international areas. Also have found that being respectful but firm with locals goes a long way.
Really do appreciate everyone’s insights.
