We had a day-trip to Nogales (a boarder town between Arizona and Mexico). Here are some pictures from the trip.
Getting close to the boarder:
Interesting contrast of the development on the two sides of the boarder. Mexicans build all the way up to the fence.
The gate from the US side:
A welcome sign right after we cross the gate:
Some random pictures of the street views in Mexico:
It is always an interesting experience to see a foreign country, although we know this is not representative of what most parts of Mexico really looks like. Being a boarder town that thrives on tourism, people there are very friendly and always eager to sell us all kinds of souvenirs. It gets a bit annoying after we stayed for about an hour, but we did have a good time during our stay.
