In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

The people that I've met who are Mexican are usually Catholic. They take their religión and traditions pretty seriously. The Americans I've met here are often Protestant, and also kind of religious and try to maintain their home traditions like Thanksgiving. Americans here, however, welcome the traditions of their host country, and adapt their traditions with those of Mexico. There is a little bit of tension between Mexicans and others towards Americans. There is respect, but a little bit of tensión. You're bound to meet someone who says something negative about your country. Don't argue. All you have to do is know better, and that's enough. To argue about it will only fan the flame. Choose to stay dignified and calm if you're faced with that situation. When they see you react so politely, they usually become more respectful about your country. If not, just let it go. It's not worth upsetting yourself over ignorance.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Transfers from companies and also networking.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

In this country, a social life is important. Have friends from your native country, but also befriend the people from your host country. The people here are lovely, warm, and affectionate.
