To the editor: The problems in Mexico with the construction of housing tracts is heartbreaking but not surprising. (“A failed vision,” Nov. 26)
Having visited Baja California a number of times over the years for vacation, I was always bothered by the way business was done. One day I would be charged one price, then the next day the price was different for the very same thing. Tours promised to start at a certain time never left on time. I only got a good honest effort if the hired people knew I was willing to provide a good tip.
I feel sorry for the many hardworking people of Mexico, but the government housing project is a reflection of the corruption I have seen in that country before.
