We went back to San Diego that night, going through American customs drunk was pretty daunting! We went back to the campsite, it was so popular. As it was Thanksgiving today, everyone was there with their families (very strange place to celebrate), there were huge marquees with tables laid out and everything and massive TVs. We have since discovered, the Americans sure do love their campervans!
Very jetlaged still, so went to bed very early that night!
We met up with the people who we were going on our Trek America tour with in the hotel lobby at L.A. We all piled into the van and made our way down to San Diego. We went to an area called La Jolla where we saw Sea Lions and pelicans, it was nice and sunny, so we thought the rest of America was going to be like that - silly us! For the afternoon, we made a unamimous decision to go down to Mexico as it was so close. We went to a place called Tijuana, apparently it's the most visisted city in the world, 20 million people visit it every day - how this is possible, I do not know, but there you go! We tried to be touristy and walk around but we had looked at the whole place in about 10 minutes, so after much harrassement by every single Mexican, we decided to just go into a bar for $1 beers and 3 for 1 on Margaritas! In the first bar, the man was literally crazy, me and Jon both suffered his crazyness, starting with me (Fay). He randomly grabbed my head tipped it back and poured tequila in, then he shook my head around after I had swollowed it and then took me to some stage, threw me over his shoulder and span me round and round while some siren went off - felt pretty quesy afterwards! Jon was convinced this wouldn't happen to him as he didn't think the man could carry him - how wrong he was!
