return to America

Several things to note about Mexico, that I, the one person in my class who had not been to Tijuana, have gathered.

--Shopkeepers are very aggressive.
--Marble chess sets are darn pretty.
--Said chess sets are also hard to haggle over.
--There are peddling children around every corner.
--Sunburns make one hyper, at least for one night.
--Volleyball is an excellent way to pass the time.
--Anyone can speak Spanish when put under enough pressure.
--'baila' is Spanish for 'bullet'; not for 'dance'.
--People like to catcall.
--Said people receive one specific finger when talking to a sore, sunburned person.
--And, most importantly, do not drink the water.
