Never made it down to Sierra Vista. Shoot, never made it up to the Grand Canyon. After 2+ years, wife caught valley fever, and we had to leave. Honestly, give me a 3 bedroom 2 bath adobe house up in the hills, and I'd never leave.

As for your comment about Mexicans, moving to Arizona was eye opening. My family comes from the northeast, but my dad's side was from the coal country of eastern Kentucky. When I was 6, we moved from New York - Woodstock - yes, that Woodstock to Raleigh NC in the great IBM migration. Most of our neighborhood was from the north, there were a few natives. So, in that environment, blacks were looked down on. There were NO asians of any type or hispanics. The few natives had black maids which I thought was totally weird. Don't judge me - it just did not compute. I remember having great chats with them.

Moving to Arizona was eye opening. Back in the early 80s, the border was under control and pretty much the only border traffic were people crossing at Nogales. The societal pecking order was whites, blacks, Mexicans, and Indians - as in native Americans. I never could wrap my head around it. I just ate the food. There was one family in our neighborhood - husband was retired Air Force, his wife was Korean. She invited all the women over for an authentic Korean lunch. This is where my wife learned that MSG is evil. 36 hours later, 2 gallons of water and the migraine was gone. Live and learn.
