Tijuana

First visit, or at least real time spent in Tijuana rather than commuting to and from the airport. I don’t know what to make of the city. We went from a starbucks in the Rio zona to the “wall” that comprises the U.S.-Mexico border along the beach and ended up at a boxing match framed by the entrance arc to Revolucion (The main tourist drag).

I think border towns are interesting, unique places unto themselves which could not be categorized as being 100% one country or another. What I hate about them is the desperation and need that comes with a country of immense need sharing a border with a country that has little need, only wants.

Here are a couple of pics that I liked, but I’ll add more later.
