Welcome to my pages.



Mexico facts & history in brief

Tijuana is a rapidly growing city in Mexican California (Baja California state), at the United States, border about 20 kilometres south of San Diego.
Tijuana's name may came from the large ranch called the Tia Juana (Aunt Jane) or from the Indian name for the region.
Tijuana was a small village in the early 1900's, now a bustling big city with attractive public buildings and luxury hotels, gift shops, fine restaurants, nightclubs, bullfights, and horse races.
The once seedy, sin city just south of the border, now attracts thousands of tourists from the United States to spend millions of dollars at Tijuana's duty/tax free shops.

Population around 1 million.

In 1996 while I was in San Diego I went over to Tijuana for a few days.

Only a border post away, but the two very different and contrasting countries.

It was a real eye opener and a memorable experience.
