    H-Street and Palomar trolley stops are very safe (and have a lot of parking), per a transportation police employee. He ranked palm Ave low in terms of security.

    That is horrible! Itzel was a great girl. Always kind to me.

    Her lack of English and my crappy Spanish always made for comical interactions. She was also smart. There was a girl I spent nights with, at Ticuan, Itzel told me to get rid of her. Should have listened to her! LOL.

    I too would be surprised if Ricardo was the suspect. Always seemed to be a good and hard-working guy. Hope that he's found and innocent! Thanks for sharing.

    A little over a week ago Itzel the bar cashier went missing after a night out drinking with other employees of Ticuan. She was last seen leaving a sixth st bar with Ricardo a hotel mesero. Her body was found this past Saturday dismembered and stuffed into a couple suitcases in a rural area. At this time Ricardo is believed to be a suspect and has not been seen since.

    While I have seen Itzel many times I have never spoken to her. On the other hand I am quite familier with Ricardo and he is a very nice young man. Not a person you would believe to responsible for such a gruesome murder. Only time will tell if he is also a victim or the suspect.

    Only the paranoid survive.

    Having a "throwaway" wallet in my pocket and a hidden wallet saved me from losing my passport, credit cards and cash. A couple Rateros jumped me on Constitucion a few months back and as soon as they found my throwaway wallet with a few dollars of coins, they ran off happy. I was happy too despite my sore neck, because they didn't find my stashed passport, cash and cards. Paranoia paid off in Tijuana for me!

I keep my wallet, phone and passport in my pocket. I can't put money in my socks because I don't wear them.

Old cell not your new I phone. Take memory card out so they don't have your pictures and use a screen lock. As far as the trolley goes. Yeah that trolley is the most trashy sketchy group of people I've ever witnessed. If you look closely at the trolley crowd you will see many switchblades. People take them out in front of you.

I'm from Chicago but never noticed anyone with knives or crackpipes. You will see crackpipes every day walking in San Diego if you look at people closely.

But I've not personally experienced or witnessed anything that would cause me safety concerns if you have a reasonable amount of awareness. In fact, the scariest encounters I had this past visit were on the trolleys in San Diego with some clearly mentally disturbed riders.

    With respect to others that have had issues occur to them in Tijuana, I would very likely feel like you do. When I've had a scary issue or two stateside, I too generalize about a city, or an area. But we all need to remember, YMMV. And you can take common sense steps to mitigate those concerns.

    I agree, there is a lot of unwarranted fear mongering on here. But just because you had a uneventful walkabout today does not mean you will have the same experience tomorrow and every other time. Often times. It will be Tijuana police itself who will pull you ever for something stupid like crossing a street on red light, and will attempt to extract "a fine" from you. My point is. Don't get too comfortable and think that nothing will ever happen to you in Tijuana. It is no Beverly Hills or even San Diego.

I walked over to Revolution around 7:30 pm and up a couple kilometres to Calle Once. Nice walk! No one accosted d me or gave me the evil eye. I think there is some scaremongering going on about Tijuana that seems a bit unwarranted. In the RLD you have to keep your guard up. But once you away from the RLD Tijuana becomes just another tranquil Latin American town.

    Uber and Figral question.

    When I took uber back to the border last night, I typed "frontera" and the uber driver said Uber understands this word as the name of a storefront. He said I should type "frontera San Ysidro" to go to pedwest. Does this mean I type "frontera San Pedro" to go to pedeast?

    When returning to USA, the border guys ask if I have anything to declare. Should I declare any Figral (viagra) tablets I bought? Where is the best place in Tijuana to buy this brand?

    Thanks!

Took uber back to the frontera (San Pedro) around 11 pm. No complaints great Uber service.

Just not one I care to make walking around Tijuana.
