I was down to Mexico last weekend, and took these pictures of the border fence along the Mexican American border. Mexico is on the right hand side and it appears to be a residential area with homes built up the side of the hill. At the bottom of this hill are many small shops that cater to tourists. Tucson is about an hour from the border, so a trip down to Mexico is easy to do.
Many of the houses in Mexico are patched together with a variety of salvaged building materials giving them a rather haphazard look. There is a good deal of poverty in this area, but the people you meet are some of the friendliest anywhere.
