San Diego Day #1

Well we took the Trolly line to Mexico. This is not like other mass transit systems....We did not feel "safe" on this train ride, but we maid it to the last stop in TJ. We were just about to cross through the gate and go into Mexico when a nice Border Patrol Officer reminded us that with out a passport or two foms of ID, Lauren could not come back to the USA.....Dang it, I was so close. Lots of freaks and bum ride the trolly in SD.
This was our diner spot on the first day, The El Indio, est 1940. It was featured on the food networks Dinners, Drive-ins and Dives. It was good, but La Frontera is just as good.

The big Mexican flag as seen from the USA side. I noticed that when we were at the border there were lots of people taking walmart bags full of stuff into Mexico, but it didn't look like any of them had passports??????

On the "skybridge" to nowhere. Can you smell the urine like we could?

This is our rent a car, or the "Fire Truck" as we named it. Hey its got a sun roof and were in So Cal, what more could you ask for. We spent our first night at the Double Tree Hotel. A nice little crib for the upper class. We were forced to book an executive room for the first night. The indoor pool was open all night, we had complimentary Bruscheta (sp) and pot stickers when we came in for the night and Lauren found the bed to be just what the Dr ordered and she crashed by 10 pm.
