Tijuana

Yesterday afternoon we escaped San Diego. While it was great fun, the lifestyle at Pacific Beach was beginning to wear us down. A group from the Banana Bungalow were heading down to Mexico for a night out in Tijuana. We saw our chance to escape and took it. The plan was to cross the border with a few friendly faces to help us through the process, break away to find a place to stay then regroup with the gang to see what Tijuana was all about. Now anybody who's ever heard of Tijuana and the stereotypes that exist about it will appreciate the irony involved in checking into a downtown Tijuana hotel to escape the vice of San Diego.

The guide books tell us that it's much tamer than it was in the 80's. I don't believe it. I won't get into the gory details but mom, you can be rest assured that our hotel was actually a nice, clean and safe place that didn't offer rooms by the hour. We kept our wits about us.

Today is a different day. We're back on the beach in Rosarito, 1 hour south of Tijuana in a place called the Alamo. We're meeting up with Caroline, a British backpacker we met in San Diego and may spend a couple days here before heading down the coast.

i don't see the point of having a 'latest position' marker if you don't update it.
