People / Language, Tijuana
Walking around Tijuana I noticed quite a lot people, guys to be more exact... doing nothing - just standing, sitting and looking around. Unemployed or... secret policemen or... any other ideas? :-)
I first looked at Tijuana from the bridge over the Tijuana River. My first impression: what a mess! You can add here: nice or terrible or interesting or..., what do you think?
Do they build their houses (usually with no yards) wherever and however they want?
**Mexican people are so proud about their flag. In Tijuana (at least at that time, 1998) is the Mexico's biggest flag.
**It is not a good idea to talk about sex in front of the ladies.
**For Spanish speakers, as in most of the South America, some words do not sound good as culo, coger...
**If a Mexican call you "cabrón" it's not rude.
The locals in Tijuana are friendly, but keep in mind they will view most tourists as money bags! You will also notice that Mexicans of all ages will be working for your money and sometimes this can be a bit disheartening.
One of my favourite Florez pictures--this is one of my best friends to this day, Elena, with two little Mexican girls. Being a Spanish-speaker, they flocked to her! Even if you never encounter real locals in Tijuana, try to understand that real people do live there, including these two girls, wherever they may now be--it is not all about tacky tourism!
One of the best things about this trip had to be the people we met - something a resort or spa vacation cannot offer!
Soccer right now on TV??? let's find a television quickly. Seems like a sports bar but it is an electronics storre.
Lisa was all smiles...the best thing about this picture besides her expression is the great view of the area aound Florez that is behind her.
