Well, it’s Friday again. We all made it. The President had his re-corontation this week, and all for the low low price of $170 million of your hard-earned tax dollars. God bless the USSA! So happy you put in a 50-hour work week so that O’Bomber can have 42 inauguration balls—despite already having had an inauguration in 2009! And look at Michelle’s fabulous bangs!
On to the feedback…
Hello Jeff and everyone else at TDV,
I wanted to ask you about the option of moving to a border city in Mexico. I know in the past Jeff has mentioned going to Tijuana when in San Diego to experience freedom. Since there are many of us here in the USSA who, for whatever reason, cannot pack up and move to Chile, how feasible do you think it is for Americans to move to a border town such as Tijuana, but still have a job or business stateside? Are there any TDVers that are currently in this situation and can give some advice on this?
Thanks for your help. Hopefully I will be able to make it to Acapulco sometime this year to check out your condos!
Your idea might sound like a good idea at first, but believe me, you do not want to do this!
The main reason is the border crossing. Going from the US into Mexico is glorious. You can walk through a building with a few guys playing cards and eating tacos who won’t even ask you for a passport or even talk to you and within seconds you are on the streets of Tijuana where every bar is open, every drugstore and alcohol vender is open and anything you want is freely available.
Going from Mexico into the “land of the free” in the US, on the other hand, is one of the worst things I’ve ever had to endure. I’ve driven through and walked through. I’m not sure which one is worse. On the time I walked through I was in a line-up of approximately 5,000 people that stretched for miles. It was about 90°F out and a blazing sun and what looked like easily a 4-5 hour wait surrounded by armed men, drug sniffing dogs and barbed wire fence. I was surprised anyone would do it but I needed to get back to San Diego to pick up my stuff after a wild night out in Tijuana.
