I am curious to know what everyday life might have been like for a trio of American foreigners in the northern, near-border regions of Mexico during the early days of World War Two. Specifically, I am interested in knowing how they would have been treated by the people and the government, the technological level of early-WWII Mexico, and what it would have looked like in a fairly metropolitan area close to the border.

Note: This information is for a WWII-era RPG i'm GMing in which the players have decided to evade drafting by fleeing to Mexico (go figure).

  • Is it too broad, or just vague? This is not a proper question for the site. – Tyler Durden Apr 27 '16 at 14:41
  • Specifically, how would they have been treated by the natives and the government? – Megalonychidae Apr 27 '16 at 14:44
  • Rural areas or at a border town like Tijuana? – Steven Burnap Apr 27 '16 at 15:33
  • Definitely a border town. It is primarily metropolitan. – Megalonychidae Apr 27 '16 at 15:37

    So, would that be October, 1939, or January, 1942? – DJohnM Apr 27 '16 at 18:08
