Live in Mexico, work in the US?
Anyone done this? Cities to recommend? Any experience with what the cost of living is like in northern Mexico? Any legal issues I should be aware of?
Now, I'd have no problem living in the town of Creel in the Copper Canyon, but hey, that's a day away from the border.
In fact, if you want, its possible to make a living teaching english in Mexico city and other places for a while. Anywhere BUT a border town will be just fine, with the exception of places that will be obvious to you.
Crossing the border, to get into the US, no matter where you cross, is a headache. Sure, it takes no time at all to cross from the US into Mexico, but the wait to come into the US from Mexico varies from 15 minutes to 2-3 hours, depending on the time of day and a whole slew of other factors for which there seems to be no equation. Of the hundreds of times that I have been back and forth from the US and Mexico, by land, either by walking or driving, I have always had to wait and the amount of time was never predictable.
What kind of work do you have in mind, BTW?
