Crossing border USA/MEX - Drupal Tour 2016

By Eduardo García ● CTO | June 10th, 2016

Yesterday finally I returned to America (the continent), We landed in San Diego after a short stop in Los Angeles.

In San Diego, my friend Jesus Olivas pick us up to depart to Mexicali, Mexico.

After about two hours driving in the middle of the desert, we reach the USA/Mexico border, and we enter in Mexico “Mojados.”, But just for a few minutes. Because the border control from the USA to Mexico almost doesn’t exist; Jesus drives, and no revision, no passport control, drive and you are in Mexico.

That is how borders between countries must to be, but I knew we would have problems in Mexico City when we try to leave Mexico to Costa Rica. For that reason, we return to the border and ask the police officer how we can register our entry, and they point out towards the office where we pay a fee to enter by land.

The only remain problem is with the USA because they don’t have a border control to exit the USA to Mexico; So I didn’t log out my session from their system, I guess the next time I enter in the USA they will clear my session or fix in some way.

As you can image Mexico is all about TACOS!! and we ate delicious tacos prepared at Jesus’ home and outside local burgers in a local business with his family.
