Sister Cities - theme day

The goal of the Sister Cities is to "Promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, & cooperation - one individual, one community at a time." This is the view from San Diego (county) of our sister city Tijuana, Mexico which is about 20 minutes from downtown San Diego. You can see the border fences, the Mexican flag, and the landmark Tijuana Arch built in 2000.

Interesting photograph, Felicia. It seems to be very polluted down that way - or is it fog? That arch sure makes an impact on the landscape.

An interesting post on the September Theme.

Felicia, Ohhhhh, I know THAT skyline! I just crossed that border on foot last month and walked all the way to the arch, then about a mile up the main boulevard. And the next day we drove east to Yuma, then up to Parker so we saw plenty of the border patrols you pictured yesterday. Lots more than in years past.

It's not just the photograph that is stunning but your very clevr idea is simply amazing! Loved it so much!

By the way, I'm another sister city of San Diego! And I have featured your city on my blog! Photos courtesy of my older brother who's living there!

Hope to see you too on my blog! God Bless you and have a great week!

I've been there! :-) I didn't realize Tijuana was SD's sister city, though.

Sorry I've been out of the loop lately. . . .just crazy here.
