Last Saturday we took our kid for his first trip to Tijuana, my mom and suegra had to visit the Destist so went ahead and planned a mini trip to TJ with them. Before leaving we had the usual burrito de huevo and a coffee and headed out to pick up my mom’s and suegra. My kid was stocked and wanted to get there already.
The first thing my kid asked for was Papitas so I got him some Adobada Sabritas, hehe. Some of the stuff on the buildings are pretty interesting. The building decorations are art on it’s own.
This was on somebodies wall, don’t know what it means, it’s probably just for decoration, but it’s a full on painting on tile ebbed ed into the wall.
Hand drawn signs have always been my favorite, here’s a Taxi sign in the street. I wish I could make this into a font.
Churros with Cinnamon are the best. Have you seen how these things are made? Awesome.
Julian was tired of eating Papitas, Tacos, Nieve and candy he finally was about to give in and call it a day. Before he fell asleep he told me that “Me gusta Mexico” then I had to carry him for an hour before we crossed the border. I took some time to post some DIMEX stickers before leaving town. Going back pretty soon. Maybe Ensenada this time. Nos vemos.
I couldn’t find the building, it was a little difficult so I asked the security dude in the library and he pulled out a huge map of the Cal Poly Pomona, looked at it and pointed at the building. I still couldn’t tell, it was a bunch of boxes that where suppose to resemble buildings. So he told me how to get there and I took off. The building was uphill and it reminded me how much out of shape I am at the moment, I caught my breath and finally found it. Some cool looking chick was sitting in the floor reading the business side of the Los Angeles Times and in the background I would hear a guy talking about how he had shipped a customers package a while back, yeah it felt like the business building.

I remember my first time I went to La Cueva. They were in a huge night club called El Patio in Rialto, it was 2001 I was around 17 still in high school and was going through a phase where all I would listen to was corridos. One day my friends invited me so I tagged along and went for the ride. My first Rock en Español club, I was surprised to see how people danced and dressed at this new club and to top it off the type of music that was played. I had grown up listening to this type of rolas because of my dad. He would bump it through his little boom box while working out. El Tri, Caifanes and Mana just to name a few. I felt good, connected, I felt welcomed, Cueva spoke Culture to me. This Friday they will be celebrating their 14th birthday, it has been 10 years since the first day I set foot there and to this day I feel the same thing when I walk into this Club. Join us this Friday to celebrate a decade of Rock en Español and to be part of el Desmadre. The line-up at the Jump. Nos vemos.
