Turista Libre at the tianguis


The paradox regarding a mob of 30 gringos crossing the border to visit Tijuana's longest-running flea market, apparently, is that the majority of the merch hails from north of the line. True that may be, but ours don't come with pancakes, flautas, corn juice, $2 haircuts or hand-stitched Super Mario Bros. hats. And so, the turistas go shopping high in the hills of Francisco Villa.
