We had another great day of exploring, we ended up in Calexico, California. We stopped at the Chamber of Commerce for information about the area, they were very helpful. We are planning a trip into Mexicali and a drive into San Felipe, Mexico. We will have to purchase special Mexican insurance before driving the car over the border. We are looking forward to our trip and seeing another part of Mexico.
I was really surprised at the size of Calexico, I had expected a small border town, but it has a population of over 30,000. The lady from the Chamber of Commerce described it as the "American" side of Mexico with Mexicali being the Mexican side. We drove right up to the border to see how it looked and did a U turn and returned back into the U.S. at the last moment. :-) Mexicali is a huge city, you can walk right into the middle of town across the border. We have a lot of exploring to do in this exciting part of California.
We went to another Mexican restaurant for more tacos today, Jared and Jerry had Mexican meals and I was ready for a burger this time. :-) When we got back to the RV park, a group of people invited us to join them around the fire, we met a lot of really nice and friendly people. They are having a special hot dog party Saturday and invited us to join them for our new neighbor initiation. How cool is that? We are really loving this area.
We are taking Jared to San Diego tomorrow, we look forward to showing him all our favorite places in San Diego. Check back later for more from California.
