I know you can’t really judge a man till you walk a mile in his shoes, but still, how the hell do I get Tyler Cowen’s job:

In seven days’ time I will spend a few days in northern Mexico.  I am researching, among other topics, how health and safety regulations influence food markets and why a border can matter so much for foodstuffs.  My sites will be Hermosillo, Chihuahua, and Tijuana.  Do you have any recommendations?  I won’t have much free time.  No whales, no Copper Canyon, etc., but of course I will eat three (or more?) meals a day and have some time in each city.  I thank you in advance for your ideas.
