I got to the border crossing and there was a lot of Armed guards with large guns, it was funny cause it was so easy to go into Mexico as you walk pass a large fence with barb-wire and before you know it you are in Mexico and Tijuana is right in front of you.
When I got over the border there were little girls selling jewelry they only look like 2 or 3 years old. I told them I had no money and continue walking on!
I spent about 4 hours in the City of Tijuana look at all there arts and crafts and even trying a Tequila Sunrise!
I return to American soil around 5.00pm and on my return I saw the little girl who try to sell me some jewelry. I had about US$3 in my pocket and I gave it to her, it was amazing to see her face light as she ran back to her mother. I asked a local why she was so happy and he told me that the US$3 I gave her could feed her family for 3 nights. Pretty amazing really!!!
