First Day In Cali

So I been planning on going to see Ortega for a while now and finally this year I was able to make it happen.
He lives out on the west coast in LA. Which happens to be 2 and half hrs or 3 hrs away from TJ Mexico. So as soon as i landed he picked me up and we made moves. So we hop on the ghetto greyhound aka Fronteras Del Norte think of riding a short bus for that very 3 hrs. So naturally of course I pop 2 Tylenol pms and pass out. So next thing i kno where at the border. The Mexican border is shady sketchy and everything i expect from it.
We make our way in no one stops or checks us of course and and Mike takes me on for this ten minute walk to where the action is. On this small journey I see starving children street performers and all kinds of things you would expect to see on a Mexican side street. The first kid comes out of no where and hes like hey you while juggling 6 bean bags finishing his act by catching one on his neck. We quickly walk past. Then Mike takes me across this dark ass bridge where i am more then certain we are going to get robbed luckily we don't. We finally make it to Revoultion Ave which is like i guess broadway ny instead of theater shows there strip clubs and instead of hot dog vendors theres taco stands and the blasting of American hip hop music.
Mike first takes me down the street we are just looking at various places. Looking for a place to eat a taco or have a beer before we start the night. After a while he decides to show me the north area aka the red light district of mexico.
I will keep saying this to describe this part of TJ mexico... they call Las Vegas sin city well clearly whoever said that never been to Tijuana. The streets paved with the most beautiful mexican women your money could buy. These werent your scummy american hookers theres were beautiful women of all shapes and colors. Strip clubs galore and of coure the federalis were watching everyones every move. ........To be continued......
