Tijuana has always had a PR problem. However, I live quite comfortably, more cheaply and with better food than in San Diego. It's good to know that Philadelphia has a worse murder rate than Tijuana. Why is it that the U.S. media doesn't divulge that as much as it attacks Tijuana? There's a lot of bigotry, racism, predujice and red-neckism involved in criticizing Tijuana and Mexico in general. If you aren't in the drug trade, your probability of facing a mugging or gun attack is practically nil, with the usual exceptions due to bad luck; certainly better than in Philadelphia and many other U.S. cities (and towns).
