A Tijuana House Building Project with the Newman Catholic Center of Davis CA. Tijuana, the quintessential border town between the USA & Mexico. Baja California meets San Diego right here along the ocean, where the bull fighting ring sits & the waves crash below.

    Tourists flock in by the thousands each year, but seeing Baja is more than just spending a few hours shopping in TJ. If you wanna get the full flavor of this city, without the crazu traffic, then take the red trolley from downtown San Diego to the San Ysidro border; walk across & spend the whole day near Revolution Ave. Make sure you wear your best walking shoes.
