Jessica ❤️'s insight:

I think life expectancy will be low for the people on the side where is poor. Since the government doesn't do anything on trying to help them out. there is over population as you can see in the picture. People walking around where they have to go.  It's a less developed place since there is  building but it seems that there isnt enough space for people.

As you view the images of San Salvador, use what you learned in Human Geography to explain what their life is like.  I should only see terminology from our unit on Human Geography (i.e. overcrowded, formal region, functional region, overpopulation, life expectancy, population pyramid, etc.)

San Salvador has many pretty nice and clean places. But others aren't so pretty. Their sewage drains in some parts aren't connected so all the dirty water is just flowing down in some kind of polluted waterfall, full of garbage sitting there destroying the soil. It's infrastructure is highly developed in certain areas but in others its very low. It's packed in some places  home made of scrap metal, then in others it's a beautiful green scenery.

Mexico City Wants to Become the Next Times Square

Mexico City Wants to Become the Next Times Square | World geography �� | Scoop.it
Mexico City's government is trying to transform one of the world's largest cities by beautifying public spaces, parks and monuments buried beneath a sea of honking cars, street hawkers, billboards and grime following decades of dizzying urban growth.

Jessica ❤️'s insight:

I think it  can't experience positive growth.  All the drug trade has grown higher. There is a lot of violence and if the violence isn't over how can it change. I know if Mexico tries to Do something about the violence it will.  If tourist come and visit Mexico City the economy may get better and maybe then they will do something about it.

I agree with @Vivica Juarez. This is a great opportunity to improve Mexico's infrastructure and show the beauty of the city. Although the drug war will continue, hopefully this will help decrease the amount of drug trade.

I think this is great for Mexico. After so much time of struggling I think a change is needed. Making the scenery more pretty will definitely attract more tourists which will bring more money to the country, improving the Economy. Although I believe the drug trade really can't be stopped because of how dangerous it is, this could possibly be a new start and a distraction from all the bad things happening in the country.

I agree with @Vivica Juarez because of the drug trade issue. People will never stop because they WANT to do it and they're addicted to this process by now, which is sickening.
