Border cities: A common mindset

Living in a border city has its own cultural implications. Now imagine living in both border cities. I am not talking about being a resident in both cities, but doing your daily activities in both of them. In my case, I am talking about Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, and El Paso, Texas in the U.S. The contrast of these two cities are notorious, so are their similarities.
