Entry into the US at San Ysidro

Not very good pictures, sorry for the quality. Was politely asked to turn off my camera as I approached the inspection facilities.


Vendors sell all types of souvenirs/trinkets/food/drinks imaginable at the border. Actual border line is where the yellow dots cross the road.





Multi-lingual welcome sign at the actual border line (but still 7 car lengths before the inspection.) Time from here to entry: 24 minutes.

Point is introducing toll at short section from border to Szeged, which used to be toll-free. So they would open those crossings as alternative.

But isn't it possible to avoid the toll by immediately turning to the old road? http://goo.gl/maps/XkLd9

How long does it take in total? It seems quite slow if this short stretch takes 24 minutes, what do they inspect so much.

Also on the video, on the entry to Mexico, did you even show your documents to anyone?

I like North American welcome signs / international border crossing than Europeans even though European more convenience.

Where's that? I've seen trilingual - English/French/Spanish - ones.

At the Canadian border, particularly the Quebec border, they should include French. (Welcoming visitors in their own language is surely an appropriate place to make an exception to any local-language-only policy.)

Video of the drive from about a mile before the border to the first toll booth along Mexico 1-D, near Playas de Tijuana, heading towards Rosarito.

(Leaving US at 1:35, Mexican inspection station at 2:58.)

is there no ID check at the border?

There is some variant between Quebec and France French, just like British and American English.

Don't tell the French that!

But I wouldn't assume that the French on signs in Vermont is correct. I'd expect "s'arrêter" too, but I didn't know "arrêt" was wrong (if it is...). But that may be because I'm used to seeing it.

Arrêt = Stop in QC French.
Arrêtez = To Stop

So arrêt is not wrong, could also work for stop.

I can't get a good link, but Larousse on line accepts "arrêter" without "s'," when referring to stopping a vehicle, but classifies it as "familier".

Doesn't seem to have a problem with the noun "arrêt" either. (NOT labeled as "familier" this time) Examples include an "arrêt d'autobus" - bus stop - or a vehicle that makes "arrêts fréquents" - frequent stops.

A matter for francophones, of course, which I'm not, but I was curious.
