I wasn’t in Mexico

Look what I saw at Venice Beach yesterday! A car from Juarez, Mexico! I have never seen any Mexican license plate in all my years in California but this one is from Juarez. Isn’t that the most dangerous city in the hemisphere? The murder capital of the world? That’s where all the drug dealers are. But what would this vehicle be doing at Venice Beach? All I saw there were street performers, sunglass kiosks, T-shirt shops, and bunch of medical marijuana shops. Hmmm, it’s a conundrum.

My sister came to town for the weekend with her two daughters and one granddaughter for some fun. We went to Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and shopped and ate ourselves into a near coma: a monster buffet, gourmet burgers, Benihana, Cheesecake Factory, Chicken Pot Pie at the Daily Grill, Pinkberry for dessert. Well… you can imagine. I was one slice of cheesecake away from needing my stretch pants! 🙂

    A car from Mexico? Now that’s what you call a long ways from home. If Juarez, Mexico is the most dangerous city maybe Sue’s right…
    I like having a girls day. We do that sometimes and it’s a lot of fun. I’m glad you enjoyed the weekend and was able to spend time with family 🙂

    I saw a car with Chihuahua license plates in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada!

    I also see cars with Hawaii and Alaska plates periodically in NY.

Everybody loves California!

    I spotted a car from Hawaii in Ohio, once. All I could think was, “someone is going to need an oil change, soon!”
