Cuernavaca, MEXICO. Cuernavaca is recognized as the "Beverly Hills of Mexico". The city is known for its perfect weather and that from any elevation in the city one can see that many of the homes have swimming pools.
The last foreign troops to invade the lower 48 were led by Mexico's Pancho Villa. After helping oust the dictators Porfirio Diaz and Victoriano Huerta, he fell out with fellow insurgents. In 1916, Villa, 38, and his loyalist shot up Columbus, New Mexico. John Pershing and 4,000 US soldiers chased him for a year across northern Mexico in vain.
