Valley residents who regularly travel to Mexico say they simply exercise caution and common sense down here, undeterred by a U.S. Department of State's November travel warning to some parts of Mexico. In a state by state assessment, extra precaution particularly at night was advised for northern Baja California including Mexicali and Tijuana, but no advisory is in effect for southern Baja California. For the one-year period ending in July 2012, the number of murders in Mexicali increased by 43 percent, from 127 in the preceding year to 181, according to the report with Tijuana showing 351 murders for the same year.

Story by HEATHER BREMNER, Photos by KEVIN MARTY, Staff A woman in white standing in the window of an abandoned building. A little girl waiting near the doorway of an old El Centro home.
