    SENTRI lanes.

    Average crossing time 15 minutes day or night, week days or week ends.

    Re. WombatEd2 With that card, when you're driving, which line do you go through? Ready Lane, SENTRI, or?

  2. #1476

    Applied on line, paid $100, added another car for free. 1 week later I got a new GE card in the mail, good for another 6 years, no interview, no inspection required.

    State Dept must be very happy with my culture exchange program with the chicas of Mexcico.

    I'm very paranoid I got scars on me from my last visit and a hospital bill in the thousands. But I miss it. I loved the place. Not the sex the sex sucks compared to a real girl on tinder. But just drinking and walking around looking outside was thrilling. Not even just zona norte revolution on the weekends is filled with hot Mexican woman.

I wonder if its bad idea. If you walk from revolution you can get jumped. For 2 dollars its worth their time to jump you.
    Breakdown your cash to smaller bills before crossing the border. Also make sure you get some pesos too before crossing over. Why would you tell a cabbie about any amount of money that you have? That's your business. Who assumes people at HK have $250 on them at any given time? Where are you getting this information from? I think that you are too paranoid. Just relax, move methodically and deliberately, be certain and decisive, add chicas, mix / stir, consume and have fun.

    The pedestrian bridge is fairly safe. I have only had one incident where this one guy walked behind me and demanded money from me in all my years of crossing the river. Luckily he only got $20. The main thing is to try and walk with other people and constantly look to see who is behind you. There is video cameras on the bridge, but not so sure how often the cops monitor them.

More often than not, I walk to ZN, over the bridge. Granted, I'm a big guy. By Mexican standards, I suppose 5'11" is tall. I'm also a bit overweight (& wonder if that makes me more or less of a target).

    I would just ditto what was already said. Keep your head on a swivel. I've never seen anything like 7 rateros jumping someone. I had one incident personally, where I was certain I was going to be mugged by 2 guys. I followed advice I read here and kept one eye on the back of my head. So I saw it coming. I turned and walked towards them (my thought was. OK at least going to know what's coming). I looked them right in the eye and they backed off.

    My point, be aware. I'm 100% certain they were going to jump me if I didn't face them. (This was near the ZN side of the bridge, about 9 PM. Between Piri and Revolucion. Not my smartest move!

    Fact and Fantasy

    Interesting thread content the last couple of days.

    A new-be to the board missed the trolley. So this puts the timeline somewhere past 1 am. Let's say around 2 am, to give him time to get back from the trolley station to the ZN and do some wandering.

    He's wandering around the ZN looking for a $20 hotel for the night (But not in the only marginally habitable hotels, like Coahula, Cascadas or Rizo). We're "half a block" from HK, although the location is very vague. But we've all walked that area. So, I assume we're looking for a hotel along Constitucion? <shudder>. Yes, I realize this sounds insane to most of us, but it must be true. It's posted on the Internet.

    We're now mugged by a gang of 7(!) rateros. Well dressed rateros. Including women rateros, presumably well dressed also. I guess on their way to a club. They could have been non-Spanish speaking deportees (I've never met a deportee who didn't speak Spanish, but they must exist, as apparently they are out mugging tourists.).

    Now we're all glad that OP is alive and well. I'm guessing that the experience so traumatized him that the events became muddled and difficult to recall. I would never suggest that such a tale is made from whole cloth. I was gently reprimanded on the "other" board when posting my thoughts about a similar poster, who had a similar fantabulous tale, with similarly vague details.

    It remains for those seeking information about the dangers of Tijuana to determine fact and fantasy.

    It important to never let your guard down and constantly look to see who is behind you in the Zona. Everyone needs to keep posting any recent news. I would not be surprised if the Rateros started jumping guys on Constitucion again.

I'm short but they were all shorter than me. It was men and woman that's why I think it was just a quick grab on the way to the clubs. People get robbed in America also so it can happen anyplace but the point is you are being watched once you walk out of Hong Kong to view the scene. Being careful doesn't help because if you fight back it won't end well. The only thing you can do is hide the passport make sure you have health insurance for foreign country.

But to me the excitement wasnt sex. I get sex by 2 or 3 gorls a year. The excitement was walking around looking. I'm from Chicago so I know the streets. But people don't mess with me because I don't walk with shopping bags like a tourist. Once a year ill buy somethibg in Chicago and they streets come at you a hundred times harder if they think you are a tourist. All gringos in tijuana are targeted. I had many young men come up to me and say theyve been watchibg me walk around for a while. Guys that wanted to sell drugs or provide woman. So basically you got several dozen men watching you. Most won't rob you most will try make money selling drugs or showing you a club with girls. But the point it you are being watched and ubstand out if you are not Mexican. I was lucky I lived. I was waiting to be robbed for days just thought they would come at me and say give me the wallet. Not just try and kill me and take the wallet. And the audacity of 7 people doingbthi so methodically on a walk to the nightclub. Like its nothing.

I don't want to get into the details but I was 50 50 live or die. I had very little money on me. They all spoke perfect English. They must of been deportees, well dressed, looked like they were going to the regular night clubs and needed spending money. I didn't even drink and amazingly was only looking for a hotel because I missed the trolley. I have been on those streets before, and although not robbed, one girl in jeans, dressed like a girl at the office, also speaking English tried to get me to her motel room, I told her ID look but wasn't in mood till I drank. I got to the room the guy was in the room I bet her plan was to get me in the room, call him, then I get robbed. So I dodged that bullet. Really its a lot of bullets to dodge. The place is super exciting and my depression and lack of happiness in my own life had me going back for more till I got mugged and almost killed. That was a few months ago. Also the police will put you up against the van and pat you down often. I spent maybe 6 nights in Tijuana maybe 4 other 4 hour trips, in that time got mugged patted down by police twice. Police didn't take my money. They spoke nicely to me but they were hoping I had drugs or weapons. Essentially the issue is the deportees, they get dropped off, many don't speak Spanish, they have nothing to go to other then rob people. If you go to Tijuana, best to have a secret pocket sewn into pants for the passport, and some money to make it back to the border, and more money in other pockets, they will steal your sweater off you as well. No joke. Overall Mexico I loved and all I got to see was Tijuana revolucion and the strip bars. . But I loved the food, the tacos, the flea market, seeing Mexicans and only Mexicans, I rarely saw Americans walking around, it really felt like and country which I never got that feeling with Canada or Bahamas. 20 dollar hotels. Also don't walk from the border. I did a few times and shouldn't of. My whole life changed from this mugging I had never had anyone lay their hands on me before and now I don't even go to bars in the states because I realized I'm not tall enough to handle drunk guys. Hong Kong staff was good, really all the staff was good, the smaller bars were fine also. If a bar is quiet and not full of customers, you should avoid it, safety in numbers.
    You seem to be a bit confused, so I will honor your desire to "not get into the details" as I suspect your details won't shed much light or clarity.

    You visited a different Tijuana than the one I am familiar with. In the La Zona that I know, the only "well dressed deportees" seem to mostly be hawkers trying to get me into entering the lousy Tijuana bars or the rip-off Mermaids massage parlor. Muggers tend to work in groups of one or two, not seven "well dressed" rateros all attaching the same poor & crazy sex tourist.

    But keep dodging those bullets!
