    Question Tijuana?

    Anyone ever been? My mom is looking to go for a day this week and I'm always in charge of finding info online about our adventures. So give me some advice!

    Don't go, it's not a good example of Mexico!

    If you find some 3rd row seats that belong to a Yukon over there, let me know.

    pshh!! whatever! TJ is the place to be! cheap drinks, shady area, and stuff you can't buy in america.

    it's totally worth going at least once.
    I don't party like I used to, I party twice as hard as before....

    We're not going to party. My grandma needs some prescriptions that doctors refuse to fill here because they're more herbal and not main stream medicine. We're going there to buy the medicine as we were advised by our herbal pharmacist.

    oh and be careful what/if you eat anything there. my husband and i ate the exact same thing when we went for a weekend, and he ended up with a horrid case of Montezuma's revenge whereas nothing happened to me. I'll always remember because it was the first time i got to drive his car (we'd only been dating for maybe 2 months)

    A tip:
    Wear slacks, not shorts (just an observation I made last time I was there)
    Also, If you have a European accent, that's an advantage.

    I had no problems when I went there, and I walked across the border. As a bonus I saw a border jumper and a van getting completely ripped open by the border patrol.

    If you are driving, you don't need a passport yet (Canada/US), but as of Jan 23, you do need a passport when flying from Canada into the US.
