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? :-)
Mexican people are very warm and friendly. You should always show respect to people bye first saying, good morning, good afternoon, good evening in spanish. This will break down any barriers to get to the real questions you may have. Smile and always say thank you!
Seems as if most Americans never heard this before!
I noticed a few times local families with 4 or even more kids. Do they really have many kids? Is it a culture thing? A catholic religion influence? Illegal (socially or/and by law?) abortion and contraception? Higher fertility? What do you think?
Hmm... not at all - most locals I met in Tijuana looked Latino (is it correct word?) - people with a little bit darker skin and black/dark hair, are there any blondie Latinos?
And I saw a lot of White people and a few Black people as well in Tijuana - locals or just visitors?
If you stick to the tourist spots, like Revolution, you will find that language isn't an issue. Most of the shopkeepers speak English very well. It does help to know spanish, but it is definitely not a requirement.
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.
One of the best things about this trip had to be the people we met - something a resort or spa vacation cannot offer!
