Although my San Antonio Northside within the Loop dialect uses "over there" only for Europe, I vaguely remember hearing Hispanics in San Antonio use "over there" with reference to Mexico. I have a dim memory of a conversation with a male in the late sixties who had spent some time in Mexico and did not much care for customs that were different "over there." I think that he had experienced some dating problems that may have involved difficulties with a prospective female in-law. I try not to remember my fry-cook days too clearly.
