    • VAULT: Weekday SG Bash with pics
      (from MIA Carrizal ca spring 2016)

      Word up Amigos - Another quick trip report, and maybe my final "SG Bash" for a bit (I'm more of a BG guy). Once again, found myself in San Diego finished with work around lunch time, and who doesn't want a $100, 4-course, 8-beer meal of Mexican food in Tijuana as opposed to a similarly priced meal in gaslamp for lunch. Been lifting heavy all week, eating tons of steak and apparently zinc as well, because I couldn't resist the testosterone-fueled urge to go plow some putas for 3 hours. Great time, if too quick......

    • 11 More nights in Lima (TR)
      Logistics:

      Flight:

      I flew United round trip from San Diego using my air miles, thus a free flight, except for paying the taxes. 3 hours to Houston and another 6 to Lima.

      Logging:

      I rented a 2 bedroom, 3.5 bath, ocean front in Miraflores. I rented through Airbnb. It really wasn't walking distance to where I hang out, but the beach was easily accessible, but the water was too cold. There was 24 hour security and I had no problems bringing different women into the place. Whenever I returned to the apartment, I always bought some food for the doormen; they took great care of me!

      Money:

      The currency in Peru is Sol. The rate was about 1 US dollar to 3.30 soles. Whatever the amount was in soles, just divide by 3 for US dollars. I cashed in a bunch of dollars at one of the exchange places, which seem to be everywhere. The bills were all different colors and I did not have any problems figuring out the exchange rate. The coins were a tad confusing because of the sizes. For example, the 2 and 5 coins are smaller than the 1 sole coin. There were many places that did not accept Master Card, but Visa cards were accepted everywhere. All the places I went to had the Visa chip device.

    • What to Wear in TJ - 2019 Edition
      Friday night I needed a few things from Dax so I went to the Plaza Rio mall.  As I wandered around, I checked out the display windows and whatnot.  Apparently, the leisure suit is making a comeback!

      I'm looking forward to seeing some Amigos rockin' this look in the Alley soon....

    • Sex & Lust in Tijuana: True Sex Stories of the TJAmigos
      Featuring more than 30 real-life sex stories from the men who fell in lust (and sometimes love!) with sex workers south of the border, Sex and Lust in Tijuana: True Sex Stories of the TJAmigos pulls back the velvet curtains of Tijuana's world-famous redlight district. Professor Zee and Doctor Jim combed through the archives of the now-closed TJAmigos website to bring you a collection of sexual adventures from Tijuana. The stories within these covers were written by the Amigos themselves and several stories also feature additional commentary from the other Amigos.

      I thought it was love until she showed
      me a text message she had tried to send
      me and I noticed my contact name in her
      phone was USA GRINGO #7. Ivanho
      Tijuana used to be an escape, but it has now
      become an anchor to my very tenuous grip
      on reality. The sensations of excitement and
      anticipation are always heightened by my
      constant longing to return. Matiz

      I went back to work afterwards because
      I knew I could look everyone in the eye
      and think to myself, "You didn't let your
      trouser snake vomit on a chick's face today." CraigfromSD

      Many of you have been involved with this project over the last few years and even though it is July it is time to start thinking about this. Personally I like to throw a few dollars at this project over several months.  Probably my biggest contribution is the Carmello Candy Canes that I get each year at Costco.  Last year the price went down to like $159 pesos for a box of 12 and I over purchased but we used them all. 

      Anyway some of the folks have been finding like a close out on Teddy Bears or some doll and buying in volume which is great and very much appreciated.

      Anyone who wants to donate (big or small) can contact Fotofreak for a pay pal e-mail address. 

      One think I am offering this year is football news letters each week for the price of $50 that you can send to Fotofreak and in turn I will e-mail these to you each week.  The retail value of these newsletters is around $70 per week and well over $1000 for the year. 

      It seems like every year a few folks go with us on the 24th to visit the Zona and see the kids, and please believe you are welcome to participate even if you have never met any of us. It is a hard night to not be in a good mood and although I am beat at the end of the night, I sleep well knowing I contributed in a positive way to a neighborhood we all enjoy visiting.

    • Tamales Tia Juana
      New tamale spot on Revo between 2nd and 3rd. Right next to Border Psycho. I knew they were building something there; this morning was the 1st time I had seen something there.

      Same prices as Surtidor. Same selection. But that walk to Surtidor is treacherous for me, with all the drivers not giving a damn about you crossing the street. This will be easier and will make me mas gordo. 

      PS-why do tamale places have metal tables and seats? It seems they all have those.

    1. Looking back, I realized he was one of the first people I shot in Zona.  I didn't know his name at the time but have gotten to know him quite well over the years.  Rafael is his name.  Here's the first entry and shot of him:

      So there was this chick dancing in the median on NH.  I was with mi amigo and told him to pose on the corner so I could shoot him but just as I raise the camera, The Chiclet Vendor jumps in the photo.  You'll find him at the taco corner selling chiclets.

      Rafael and the DancerOver the past few years, I've gotten to know Rafael.  If you're a Zona regular, I'm sure you've seen him, too.  He's a Tijuana native.   For many years, he was an auto mechanic, specializing in auto electric systems.  About eight years ago though, he was in a car accident and broke many bones in his body.  He walks today with a significant limp from the accident because his leg wasn't set correctly.  After the accident, he couldn't bend and reach all the little crevices in cars like he used to so he wound up in Zona, selling chiclets. 

      About two years ago, the headlights on my old car wouldn't come on.  I asked Rafael to look at it.  Long story short, he called his brother who still did auto electric work in TJ and about two days later, Rafael and I drove up to his shop way up in the hills.  They worked for the better part of the day on my car and finally got them working consistently again!  Cost?  200 pesos, plus 50p for the switch they needed to buy.

      My headlights are still working today. :)

       

       

      A few more shots of Rafael over the years:

    2. Another year gone by since last celebrating Mothers Day por mi amiga.  I got off work at 4:30pm and jammed south.  Zero traffic. Breezed thru customs with my 6 month visa.  

      As I came down the PedWest MX side ramps, I pulled up Uber.  5 cars ? 4 mins away.  Cool. Set destination at 5th y Negrete and “Confirm”.  “Finishing trip nearby”. FUUUUUCK.  I remembered people in Uber FB group saying to cancel but I could see he was coming over the bridge.   Ok, give it a shot. 

      The nearby destination was where I was, “La Chapparell.”  Sweeet.  Lady jumps out, I jumped in. Fast and easy.  The Uber, not the Chica.  HA!!

      At 5:50 about half the florists are closed, but my favorite is one of the florists open.  

      300 pesos later have a nice flower arrangement and I am on my way to relax with mi amiga.  

      Cambio 18.1 at 5:15pm by KFC/7-11, 18.0 by PedWest mall.

      Muelle 7 will be hosting their annual Super Bowl Party on February 3 this year.  I do not have all the details but I should have it by this weekend.  Normally Pepe has hot dogs and hamburgers as well as a few other things.  Cerviche and Corn on the cob has been on the menu in past parties as well as  some other stuff.    Should have all the info soon and it is a great party for guys that want to see the game with other fans.  He always sells squares so you can win some dough.  The Mexicans do their squares a little different so their are no dead numbers, ie if one team has 14 points they add the one and four together to give the money to the guy that has 5 for that team  and the correct number for the other team.   Muelle 7 is in the Zona Rio and I will have their address posted.  Doors should be open by 1pm for those that want to grab their seat and watch the pregame.

      Its not to early to start thinking about next year. These nice size stuffed animals can be found on sale at your local walmart for around $2.49. I already hunted down about 60 of them. I was getting questioned on what I was going to do with a cart full of  stuffed animals. When I mentioned Amigo de Santa one older lady wanted to donate a small amount towards the purchase.

      I was a celebrity for 4 hours.....cannot fathom how many grown men wanted selfies with Santa Claus.  We we were finished we got something to eat at Taqueria La Chuleta and I removed my wig and beard.  I had promised my neighbor I would visit their house when I got back, so I was putting my wig and beard back on and a mesera and mesero came flying out for two more selfies.  I can go another year without that attention.

      As usual, a good time was had by all!  Super big GRACIAS to all y'all that donated to make it happen this year..... and a big gracias to @Melcher Dingle's chica and to one of the MLB chicas for stuffing stockings and wrapping all the gifts at El Torito with us. I forgot to shoot a pic of everything all wrapped and stacked but I did shoot a couple pics of some of the gifts before we wrapped.   The back of the "sleigh" loaded up with regalos y calcetíns. We adorned the sleighs with those antler and red nose things and then headed out.  When we hit the streets, there was almost an antler incident but Gringo Claus caught it!  (note: sadly, that antler was later lost to the streets of Zona Norte in all the hubbub....) Gringo Claus in his fancy new suit was loved by all and he was asked to pose for many pictures with kids and adults!   Again, thanks to everyone who donated and helped...... it's a blast to do this each year and we look forward to next year....
