Mexico is a land of extremes, with high mountains and deep canyons in the centre of the country, deserts in the north, and deep dark rain forests in the south and east.

Global Issues
Traditions
Mexico has many Traditions
Music: The traditional music of Mexico is quite different. The different regions of this country are known for different types of folk music. Mariachi is characterized by a group of 10-20 musicians.

Festivals: Every year on December 12th Mexicans gather for the feast of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The feast is followed by 9 successive days of prayers also called novena.


Water
: Mexico is affected by lack of water. The air is polluted which makes the water undrinkable. You cant drink from the tap, only bottled.

Economy
: Alot of people are extremely poor because they get poorly paid for their work.

Transportation
: Mexico has extremely high air pollution from cars, buses and taxi's. It isnt really safe if you use public taxi's because you might have things stolen. When you pack to go to Mexico, Think twice about packing any valubles because as a tourist you might be thought of as a thief.

Health
: Air pollution can affect peoples health. It occurs from car fumes that people breathe in. Air fumes also come in contact with Mexico's water supply so it is essential to drink bottled water because you can get very sick if you drink tap water.

Food
: Worldwide people are suffering from expensive food prices. Half the population of Mexico are poor and that is a global issue or disaster.

Waste
: Household rubbish is set to rise from its current 1.3 billion to 2.2 billion tons by 2025, while the yearly cost of controlling this mountain of rubbish will climb from $205 billion to $375 billion.
Positives

Along both sides of the country it is hot and humid, unbearbly so in the summer. Thousands of miles of beautiful beaches. Breezy mountain areas, but not extremely cold. People are kind and friendly. Growing economy. In most areas people talk english and very good service.


Mexico does not have safe drinking water. They have to continuously buy bottled water because of polluted tap water. In many areas there are extremely poor people because they don't get paid properly for their work. Mexico is not very safe take authorised taxi's. Food is very spicy and can make tourists sick if they're not used to it. People are suffering from high food prices.
Negatives




Unicef
helps give people clean safe drinking water, a place to live and a good education.
Mexican Child Charity
helps children without a home and that are left on the street.
Worldwide Exchange Programs Association Charity
helps with solutions and advice for people who want to study, work, live and seek opportunities abroad.
Conclusion
In conclusion to Mexico. Mexcio would be a nice place to visit, but you have to remember that you cant drink from the tap due to the contamination from car fumes. I think essential needs like water, food, transportation we should not have to pay for. We cant live without food and water but we still have to pay for it. We have to pay for trips to the hospital which we should not have to.

Due to poor leadership over a number of years over half the population of mexico are extremely poor and cannot afford food because they dont get paid enough for their work.

By 2025 it will cost $280 billion to control the waste in Mexico.
