just had to check out Tijuana

Ok, had to do the obligatory trip down to TJ during my stay here in San Diego. I get the question all the time with everyone I've talked with about me going to class here, not like I needed an excuse to go across the border anyways.

Didn't get to check out the place that was recommended to me, couldn't remember the name (doesn't help I'm terrible with names), but I still managed to find some mischief to get into none the less.

I really should learn to speak spanish, I kept getting spoken to in spanish and I have no idea what's being said. Kind of fun, I'm mistaken for nearly race from the pacific rim but the one I really am. I've only run into a handful of people who knew where I was from, let alone what native tribe I am, without me telling them first.

Coming back through customs, couldn't help but think of George Orwell and his vision of the future in his novel 1984. Next time I come up for a security clearance, gonna have to make sure I list this trip since my passport was scanned coming back across, so now there is a trail of where and when I crossed the border.

Anyways, there was some other stuff I was contemplating on the trolley ride back to the hotel but seems to have slipped my mind. Now the last minute panic of repacking all my bags to catch a flight in a few more hours, aah the energy of putting stuff off to the last minute.

ehhh, I could have been your translater, Gus. I speak Spanish quite well!
Of course, I would have charged you a lot. ;-)
