I didn’t think anything would stop the parties down in Tijuana when I was a young. I was wrong. The fall of Yosemite Station first burned and then flooded San Diego, and Tijuana suffered from many of the same troubles. It didn’t get hit as badly though, something most people figure is because of the more…transitory nature of the Tijuana economy. So much of it was always based on getting rich Old Americans to come down into Old Mexico and spend money on the very willing senoritas, or the barkeeps, or the tattoo artists. Tijuana excelled at making new markets and new opportunities to go back home missing your wallet, your shirt, and most of your memories of the occasion.
