      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.

    • Top ten reasons why I LOVE crossing at Otay.
      10. Let me get the one downfall out of the way. The cab ride cost to the Ticuan. It's $18. I usually just give the guy a twenty. If you walk down to Boulevard Bellas Artes, you can get a Libra(?) Cab for $15. Again, very difficult to find a place where an Uber can find you (unless your fluent probably) but if you can, Uber is about $6. The one positive is I've never had a problem getting an Uber back to Otay linea from the Ticuan and it's usually $5-$6 tops. 

      9. If I'm only meeting a friend for coffee at, let's say the Motel Otay, I usually take a cab there for $5 (if you can get an Uber, it's 38-43 pesos but most of them won't accept such a short trip) and I always walk back because again, Uber won't come because it's too short. They'll call you a cab if you want. The walk isn't bad, it takes about 20 minutes.

      8. I find Otay to be much safer than San Ysidro. I park in a very secure lot for $10 for 24 hours and it's only about a block from the crossing.

      7. I also find it to be much cleaner than San Ysidro. Most of the buildings look new. There's an IHOP, a bunch of other stores/ fast food places and a mini mall with a cambio (I got over 20 today! WOOOHOO!!!). And there's a 7-11 right there. 

      6. 80% of the ladies at the cambio are cuties.

      5. It's never taken me more 5 minutes to get across going in.

      4. It's never taken me more than 15 minutes (that was today) to get across coming back (Ready not Sentri).

      3. On foot street traffic is minimal and I have yet to run into any undesirables.

      2. The one time I had to fill out a Visa form, I flirted with the Border lady and got her to do it for me.

      And, the number one reason I LOVE crossing at Otay...

      They don't give a fuck! When I went in June, I had to have aforementioned Visa filled out. Ever since then (which has been about 5 or 6 trips), I first try to walk right in through the Mexican line. I don't think I look Mexican but I have dark features and am 58 so they probably don't care. If I do happened to get stopped, which has happened twice, I only had to pull out my old 7 day Visa pass from June and the expiration date is so faint they just glance at it and wave me through.

    • 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

    • Chica hairstyles in Spanish
      I like to compliment chicas on their appearance, so learning Spanish vocabulary is helpful.   

      Here are some visual aids to TJ chica hairstyles. Pelo means Hair.

       

        Straight = Lacio

       


       

        Curly = Rizado or China

       


       

       

        Short = Corto

       


       

       

        Long = Largo

       


       

       

        Wig = Peluca

       


       

       

        Ponytail = Cola de caballo

       


       

       

        Pigtails = Coletas

       


       

       

        Braids = Trenzas

       


       

       

      Add your own pics you’ve taken of TJ chicas hairstyles and the Spanish words.

    • Valle de Guadalupe weekend
      The thread says wineries, so... Even though it's not in TJ proper.

      Back in August I rented a room at the Don Tomas Vineyards, and decided to see a bit more of the VdG. I won't bore everybody with a long-ass narrative. Rocky the Flying Squirrel, and I, spent a couple of pleasant summer days hitting up various and sundry wineries and vineyards. I have a ton of pix, but it seems that Rocky's mug is in damn near every one of 'em. So, these are the culls. 

      I can heartily recommend a day, or two, or more, touring wine country. There is simply a shitload of little vineyards tucked into every nook and cranny up and down the valley. Some are excellent, some good, some only fair. I addition there are many nice places to eat, ranging from moderate to WTF expensive. (If you have a free afternoon, and the weather is good, I can recommend Corazon de Tierra). So, if you like wine and food, and like to learn about wine, and chat up folks who also like wine, then get off your ass and go.

      The only complaint I had all weekend was that, as usual, too many gringos have fucked up a good thing, at least in some spots. A couple of the larger wineries think they're in Napa, and charge accordingly.

      Thanks to all the members who are doing all the work.  Donations are easy.

      Woot! Thanks @Bill2455 and @Haus!!!  Smuggled over 75 soccer balls yesterday.... here's a shot of a few of them.... and yes, each ball comes with a hand pump.

      So last year, I hunted far and wide for good teddy bears for the littlest niños.  I finally found some and bought them all up.  @Melcher Dingle and his son were Gringo Claus's elves last year and remembered how difficult it had been for me to find these bears.  Well, it turns out they went on sale the day after Christmas last year so MD and his family went to every store that sold them within a 50-mile radius and bought all of them!  They stored them all year long and yesterday, I met him in San Ysidro to pick up the stash. HOLY COW!  We gotta lotta bears!  Soccer balls were finally shipped out yesterday, too!

      Gracias to my Amigo @Sargon for the $$$!! I've started the process of smuggling over the goodies.  Yesterday, I hauled over the 350 empty stockings that we'll be stuffing on the 20th.....    And yes, we're still taking donations!

      For anyone interested I have got the room (salon) at Ticuan for Thursday the 20th at 5pm.  We will be there maybe from 5pm to 8pm.  Thanks for all that sent donations and I have one to pick up this weekend from a member of the board that lives in TJ.
