Four years after my trip McDonalds came to Mexico, followed by Wal-Mart in 1992. I suppose the tortillas, huaraches, and frenos are cheaper now, but the change has not been pretty for small retailers, tourists, or Mexicana waistlines.

In 1990 Mexico was moved out of the "South American Handbook" (where it had been for 66 years) and into a new "Mexico & Central America Handbook" along with Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. In 1994 Mexico joined Canada and the USA in the North America Free Trade Agreement. Mexico moved from South to Central to North America in four years.
