We not only flirted with the border, we crossed it. Which was relatively easy. Which should've been a clue. The LONG car lines didn't make any bells go off either. lmao....So they were getting their Christmas on, with a band that singing Christmas carols.
And the center decorated and festive. It was sort of like being in America except the language was different. This close to the border, there were McD's, Domino's and BK. Sheesh.
And there were TONS of booths and shops. I was slightly annoyed because you couldn't walk by without being accosted. I was afraid to make eye contact or look at something. And it was hard to stop and take pictures as well. They were pushy. Sigh. Took the whole enjoyment away for me.
So we spent about 30 minutes actually strolling around, if that much. AND over an hour and a half, to get back to the America side.
The line was extremely long, and there are of coure, enterprising Mexicans that run the Mexi-cab that you can sit in for 1 1/2 hours instead of waiting in the line. Made some amigos chatting. However, I won't be doing that again. AND I didn't even get my passport stamped. How wrong is that.
