16/18 1/12/07 10:41 AM Border Memorials


The border crossing at San Ysidro was preceded by a long, long, long line of cars. Of course, when we had entered Mexico at this crossing on the day before at about the same time of day, the line was short. Weren't we lucky on this day!

We quickly decided to head for the next crossing at Otay Mesa to the east. The Otay Mesa crossing is just east of the Tijuana airport.

The border fence along the area near the airport is a popular place to commemorate the many who have died trying to cross the border illegally. I guess you could call it a "Wall of Shame". The fence was decorated with coffins and crosses along this stretch.
