I know I live in the sheltered confines of central and very rural Sonora but I never have that kind of feeling.

7 years in Mexico, 5 years full time. I do get nervous crossing back into the US though.
Neither one of those TC...more like "riding a motorcycle is not second nature to me, anywhere, I make mistakes on my motorcycle frequently, I do things on my bike that I am not quite skilled at and sometimes don't pull it off so well, I am riding my motorcycle long distances in a foreign land where I am not fluent in the language and if I have a problem can I get the help I need...if I eat that will I need to launder my riding pants...those kinds of generalized anxieties that you try to prepare for...I feel some of them here too...it is known as reasonable prudence...given that I ride motos.
