#2- “Helper’s High” or “Do Gooder Delusion”
Have you heard of the term? Few have, but it’s the rush people get when they do something good for someone. It’s an actual measurable physiological effect that includes the release of serotonin and other hormones and there’s a lot of that going around here in Latin America. It’s a good thing mostly, but can be addictive and thus like anything addictive, can get out of hand.. 
#3- Mexican Narcos and gangs are getting desperate and are now targeting formerly secure gringo tourist hot spots.
I’m not surprised and in fact predicted it. Yes... you have been warned over and over again that when Mexican Narcos and gangs lose market share or have an economic crunch (like legalization of weed in the US and Canada), they naturally turn to other sources of revenue… like to the gringos on the formerly secure and unmolested tourist trail.
