    *Tipping is expected in hotels and restaurants as in the US. between 10 and 15% of the overall bill, in tourist places. On local restaurants is between 5 and 10% no more.
    *Tipping taxi is not necessry.
    *All bussiness accept the US dollar in payment. The exchange rate will be a little higher. Not big deal!
    *Always carry a picture ID.

    Time to explain the Gone...

    Time to explain the Gone one may expect, plumbing in Tj is not the greatest. Because of this, upon arriving we were told (again and again, reminded always) to NEVER, EVER flush toilet paper down the toilet. Instead, we had to place the tissue into the basket in front of us. Well, needless to say, sometimes reflex is too strong, and often time we ended up having to 'go fish' when we remembered. It was brought up slyly one night early in the trip, and we had a good laugh about it ever after...congrats to Roberta for being the only person to never fish, and to Tina for being the recipient of the award for most fishing trips!
    (In case you are wondering, we found this sign in Disneyland when we went there for a day trip on the way back to Vancouver)

    Visitors to the northern part of Baja California do not need passports or tourist cards if staying in the country for 72 hours or less. If you plan to stay longer or travel beyond Ensenada, you'll need to obtain a tourist card. This document is free of charge; proof of U.S. citizenship is required.

    MasterCard and Visa are generally accepted in restaurants, but ask first whether a 6% surcharge will be added for international billing.

    Walking around in Tijuana is fairly safe but watch out for cracks in the sidewalks and curbs you could easily go over on your ankle.
