After the Mexican Revolution ended my great grandfather came to live in this small town of Tijuana with a few wooded houses that reminded you of a wild west town.
Well in reality thats what it was, in this small dusty town of wooden sidewalks and gas lamps with busy bars and saloons and federal military fort, and its local jail was one of the last wild west towns in North America,you could find the new land owners most of them Immigrants to this land some from Jalisco state other from Northen Mexico,some Italians,Japanease,German,English and Chinese made up this wild west town,you could cross the purely artificiall frontier to the U.S. with no papers and manny did since most of the provision came from the U.S.,Mexico City was to far away and even the population was not familiar in the use of mexican currancy,every thing was in U.S. dollars,all the buildings in the city where built in the American style and not in the traditional Mexican way of building even the planning of the city was based on a American city plan.


Im a 3rd Generation Tijuana born citizen,and yet in my life i lived many years in Beverly Hills,CA and in the City of La Paz BCs and they all have there own charm and beauty,but none the less i always belived this city of Tijuana to be my thru home.
To many it might seem ugly at a first glance but theres much more to it then a regular city,Tijuana its unique full of flavor and color, even Mexicans dont understand it,and its often refer as Tijuana the thrid nation.

I agree with many people that they say its ugly at first glance,you would need to lived in Tijuana a few years to beging to understand its beauty. and fall in love with it,its like been in loved with an ugly woman.

Yes there many poor areas of Tijuana since we have VERY FAST immigration rate,but most of the people dont live in condos or in huts,we live in houses ,i my self live in a 3 bedroom 2 bath house,kithchen laundry room and big front yard with my dog,my family is traditional midle class Mexican family like most in Tijuana and in Mexico,and about druglords well i never had come across one,and in my many years living here i never been robed or been a victim of crime ,thank god for that.


Heres some old post Cards.

6.5 A few tall skyscrapers that are spread out. It's not a terrible skyline, but still not great. BTW some people need to tone down their comments, this is a SKYLINE rating thread not a 'how shitty I think this place is' thread. There's no need to start talking about drug lords or mafia bosses, they have nothing to do with the appearance of the skyline.

Its better than Juarez.....

As Mexico develops...will Tijuana see more development and modernise, with demand for office space and higher liveing conditions? Or does it seem that it will struggle for a long time with its "catch-up" development...ie. never getting better just barely keeping up?

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.
