QUESTION: What is the pricing for international text messaging?
How much does it cost to send an international text message?
How much does it cost to receive an international text message?
What is the international long distance text messaging package?

ANSWER:

Sending an international text message from the U.S.:

It’s just $0.25 to send a text message from the U.S. To an international number. And for those who send text messages often to family or friends overseas, AT&T’s International Long Distance Text Messaging package includes 100 text messages sent from the U.S. For $9.99 a month. That’s as little as $0.10 per message sent! See below for pricing on messages received from an international number.
You can add the international long distance text messaging package to your account online within myWireless Account by visiting Manage Features (logged in users only).

Sending an international text message from outside the U.S.:

When traveling outside the U.S., the charge for sending a text message to either a U.S. Number or an international number is $0.50 per message sent.

Receiving an international text message:

Text messages that you receive from an international number will be billed one of two ways: 1) Deducted from your bucket of messages if you have a domestic messaging package (for example, Messaging Starter); or 2) Billed at the per use rate of $0.15 per text message.

Sharon asks…

Where should I visit while in Mexico City?

My Wife and I are going to visit Mexico City in November, and I am wondering what we should do while we are there. We are for sure going to Teotihuacan, and the Museum of Anthropology. What are some other things we should do while we are there? We enjoy food, art,history, and architecture. Any ideas?

Tijuana answers:

Either before or after the Museum of Anthropology you must go to Chapultepec Castle which is across the street and up the hill. Right down the street, Reforma, is the Museum of Modern Art. In the downtown area visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and the ruins of the Mexica’s Great Temple to one side of the Cathedral. The part of the Cathedral closest to the Great Temple was built with stones from the Great Temple. From the Zócalo (Central Plaza) walk up Cince de Mayo to the Fine Arts Palace(Palacio de bellas Artes). See one of the local orchestras, the Opera or the National Folk Ballet – or see one of the scores of international classical artists who perform there yearly. On your way to the Palacio or after the show have a drink and or a snack or meal at the Bar la Opera on Cinco de Mayo. The bar, food and service is just OK, but there is a bullet hole in the ceiling reputedly put there by Pancho Villa during the Revolution. If you get sidetracked downtown into shop or sidewalk restaurants that’s OK too. Dowtown is full of m 16th, 17th and 18th century buildings, many were palaces, and many have been or are being renovated.
If you are foodies you might want to visit a restaurant called Izote in the Polanco area. Http://www.izote.com.mx/
This restaurant operated by award winning chef Patricia Quintanar has been featured on programs such as Bizarre Foods. Their food is not bizarre – it’s Mexican nouvlelle cuisine or cocina nueva as we call it here. If you don’t want to spend a lot on a restaurant, but would still like some interesting and tastey nueva cocina mexicana try La Tecla, now with three locations. Http://www.latecla.com.mx/
Make sure to order the nieve de yerbabuena (mint sherbet)for dessert.

The Roma-Condesa area is the hip part of town to hang out – bars, restaurants, clubs. Polanco also has great things. Condesa is a little more Greenwich Village and Polanco wants to be Rodeo Drive.

Be sure to visit the town of Coyoacán in the south of the Federal District. It’s a charming town which was incorporated into the Federla District around the beginning of the 20th century. This is where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived. There are museums dedicated to each of them. Frida’s is in the house where they lived and Diego’s is a castle – like structure that he designed and donated to the people. It is filled with his private collection of pre-hispanic art.

Enjoy your trip. If there is anything else you would like to know you may contact me.

Charles asks…

Is gadalajara a safe place to visit in Mexico?

I gess that’s how you spell it lol. But anyways I plan to visit mexico just wondering if it is a safer town then most of the others

Tijuana answers:

Almost right spelling, it should be: Guadalajara.
And it is not the most dangerous city in México, but it is not a safe place to stay. As all big metropolitan areas (over 4 million inhabitants) the criminality is high.
And recently some crimes related to the drug war have also affected the city.
But anyway it is much more safe than the north of the country, you can visit and enjoy your time there, just being a lil bit more careful, than as usual.
