Top 5 Things to Do in Tijuana, Mexico for People Who Want a Unique Cultural Experience — By Jennifer Shipp

We’ve been through Tijuana a few times for different reasons, but each time we go, we wonder why Americans are so timid about going to this city.

The edge of the sink was sharp and it looked like it needed a stitch, but by morning, the skin was pulling together thanks to some band-aids John had put in the FJ ...
