Tijuana Mexico: Tijuana Vacation Rental Flood Part III

This video documents what happened when our vacation rental flooded in Tijuana in January 2017. Our experiences in Tijuana have been nothing but positive, though, so this event doesn't reflect our true perception of Tijuana. The city wasn't anything like what we were expecting, but in a good way. We enjoyed our time there, and we'd definitely recommend it! Just maybe don't stay right on the ...

Tijuana Mexico: Tijuana Vacation Rental Flood Part II

In January 2017 we visited Tijuana. We stayed in a vacation rental on the ocean, and at first we were all really excited about the views from the apartment. Until the Tijuana weather created a flooding situation when the rain came in through cracks around our window and from the apartment(s) upstairs. In this video, John talks about how he went upstairs to "break into" the apartment right above us to see if ...

On the American side of the border, we saw only two people far away in the distance, no ...

Things to Do in Tijuana: Discussing the Popo Market

In this video we discuss whether or not we should go to El Popo Market in Tijuana. Because it's located in Zona Norte (Tijuana's red light district), and we have a bright yellow FJ Cruiser that we'd have to find a safe parking spot for, we decided not to go. But, we figured that if we did want to go ever that we could get a cab to the Market from our vacation rental.Related Posts:Top 5 Things to Do ...

In this video, we use our blow-up couch to add an extra chair in our rental in Tijuana, Mexico. Lydian and Jennifer talk about the blow-up couch. ...

A Deadly Deluge or Just Wet Socks? — By Jennifer Shipp

Yesterday, I was in The Zone for just a few minutes. Maybe an hour. I was working on a project and for the first time since Trump got elected, I was chill.I wasn’t worried.I didn’t have anxiety.I was just working, but in a place just slightly south of the border.I have not been “chill” since November. And this is not a political statement. Not really. No. It’s an a-political statement about ...
