Its nice just sitting at one of the various seaside restaurants, enjoying a bowl of caldo de siete mares (no, thats not seven horses soup !) watching the sun sparkle off the waves. Life is good.

And what else are you watching at the beach? Aren't you the one who likes to stand in line at Telmex to pay the phone bill each month because of the gorgeous uniformed tellers in white see-thru blouses and black bras??? Wish I could get my husband talked into such an adventure! Unfortunately, I am always the one who has to deal with Carlos Slim. Does anyone know what he looks like?

Yes, indeed, Tijuana has a beach. Similar to Imperial Beach just across the line in San Diego County. Cold water, fog, riptides, murkey water, effluent that would make God sick. If you wish to move to Mexico, move to Mexico There is nothing wrong with the Northern Coast of Baja but it ain't Mexico y'all. Well maybe a little bit.

My wife and I spent 5 memorable years living in the San Antonio del Mar colonia of Tijuana. A gorgeous view of the Coronado islands and passing dolphins. We especially enjoyed the diversity of our Mexican neighbors. Hardly anyone was a native of Tijuana but rather the families came from all over the Republic such as Jalisco, Michoacan, Oaxaca, Sinaloa, D.F.,Puebla etc. As a side benefit, Tijuana has some of the best restaurants representing the cuisine of those regions. We now live in a different part of the country where there are more cultural (as in art) activities but I am really glad for the time spent near the border lest I fall under the impression that San Miguel de Allende is the real Mexico :-)

"If you wish to move to Mexico, move to Mexico, not your phoney notion of Mexico. There is nothing wrong with the Northern Coast of Baja but it ain't Mexico y'all."

Unlike this little slice of Mexican paradise called Ajijic.

I edited out that obnoxious language, UJ. Your point is well taken since you caught me before I managed to modify my remarks.

OK! There is no real Mexico any more than there is any real United States or any real Bubba.

God, you are demanding!

I hate reporters.
