1. How do you define the Tijuana-San Diego region?
For me, the border is always a cultural limbo, a bridge, a mix of binational traditions and cultures. We are separated by a wall that divides us and shows us how different we are as countries, but at the same time it shows us how harmony and an important parallel influence might exist. This border is made of dreams, effort, and hope.
