Diggy posted a topic in Trip Reports,Howdy all and happy & healthy new year first of all!
This is gonna be a long one with respect to pics/vids, so not too much writing except for the obvious descriptions here & there.
I booked two nights at the Rizo D'Oro Hotel in the zona for the nights of 1/12 & 1/13. I used my Trop VIP card to get 80% off for Tuesday night and 40% off for Wednesday night with the aid of a web coupon.
I managed to get one of those new rooms in their new wing that has room numbers 201 thru 218:-
Robxolo posted a topic in Trip Reports,So this will be a SUPER long TR.
For some background, me and my WM had planned this trip since October and bought the tickets in Thanksgiving weekend. Unfortunately due to some personal reasons, my WM had to bail out on me. This put me in a very peculiar spot, go solo, or just delay my trip for when WM was ready to go? From 2015-18 me and WM made like 3 trips every year, but due to our work schedule and life, we had not been able to go since 2018. With this in mind, and not wanting to wait more months, I decided to go solo. I would like to thank @Sargon who was awesome in helping me with certain details!! Anyways I fly out of Texas to SD last Thursday, and land in SD @9:30 am, from there I get a MTS card at the airport and load it with an all day pass. Then I get on the 992 to Plaza America, and on to the trolley! All in all, I get to San Ysidro crossing at around 11am, I get around 5k pesos and off into Mexico! Now it is here were I am sweating bullets.
This is my first time crossing during Covid, and since landing at the airport, I kept wondering, "What if they don't let me in!?!?!" My heart was pumping and I get there, and a nice senorita greeted me, asked me how long I was going to stay, stamped my passport, and I was on my merry way!!! All that nervousness, for nothing!! I was temp checked by another senorita in a hazmat suit, and no one told me to get that 180-day visa, and off I was.
KCQuestor posted a topic in Trip Reports,It had been almost a year since my last trip to Tijuana, when I was in the habit of going every three months. I had COVID over Christmas and am now fully recovered with antibodies, so I decided it was worth the trip. Booked my flight on Southwest with frequent flier miles and was off.
I landed in San Diego around 1:00. Took the 992 bus to Broadway and hit up the CVS for some supplies. I grabbed the trolley and was at the border by 2:00. I had the online FMM filled out and printed. I was ready to be charged $30 but as I walked up to the checkpoint there was no one there, either on the nationals or the foreigners side. I walked past the front booths and someone came out from a back room and waved me over to the far booths. He looked at my passport, stamped my FMM and waved me past. Not even a question. Quick temperature check by a woman in scrubs and I was in Mexico. I passed all of the cabs and just walked the few blocks to Pueblo Amigo.
optimum posted a topic in USA-Mexico Border Crossing,Does any one know what time is best after 11am on a weekday to drive back across? I assume at around 10pm it'll be a quick drive across but I prefer an earlier time. I would hope 30min or less for sure not an hour or more.
Haus posted a topic in Hotels,If you're walking down Calle Coahuila sightseeing and you feel tired, then the Hotel Coahuila is a sufficient spot to rest for a while.
I happened to have a few beers in Adelita Bar, and wanted to go relax somewhere, so I went upstairs to the Hotel Coahuila.
I met a chica in the bar who was helping me with my Spanish for a while, and she also mentioned that she can make Hospital Corners on a bed.
I asked her if she'd show me how, but I must be a slow learner because it took me an hour, but eventually I got it.
You don't even need to make reservations through Hotels.com, you can just show up and ask for a room.
Melcher Dingle posted a topic in Companionship & Love in TJ,But this one is different. Words I never wanted to utter when it came to TJ relationships. A bit over a year ago I met a woman in TJ and have been in a relationship ever since , with one little hiccup along the way. I realized I was in love during the short period we broke up. When I got that pit in my stomach and couldnt sleep at night.
But everything ended last weekend when I was able to get access to her phone. I wont go into details other than to say she was a sweet woman , but once you get into someones phone you get to see the real person.
So was it wrong to snoop around in her phone ? Probably , but the way she was intent on protecting access I knew there were things I should know about to protect myself. She has hijacked my phone several times , so I guess it was not that unfair what I did.
So now while I experience that sinking feeling in my stomach that love gone wrong creates. I will never return to TJ again. . Im sure sometimes these relationships work out but Im guessing the majority do not.
And advice to others coming to TJ looking for love. Tread with caution, would I do it again?. Absoulutly, the best year of my life. But probably best to just live the fantasy and stay the fuck out of her phone.
