TIJUANA INVADED BY ZOMBIE HORDES!

TIJUANA - IMPORTANT NEWS BULLETIN: Saturday, October 26th, 2013. Tijuana was invaded by Zombie hordes today, who roamed the streets in and around Avenida Revolucion and other areas of the metropolis, terrorizing citizens, shunning souvenir vendors, spooking zebra-painted donkeys and wreaking general havoc. "I've seen a LOT of things in Tijuana," said Roberto Ruiz, Chula Vista resident, "but never hordes of zombies!". Our interview was cut short by several zombies who attacked Ruiz, desiring to devour his brain. Finding scant sustenance, they moved on.

El Gringo did his best to fight through the hordes with Ruiz who helped to identify only those zombies that were photo-worthy. El Gringo is often asked if it’s safe to go to Tijuana. Typically, my answer is a resounding YES. But today I would have told anyone listening to avoid the city if at all possible. Miraculously, we were able to battle our way through the hordes to the border, making it across safely (and quickly) to bring you this reporting.

Would El Gringo recommend a visit to Tijuana? ABSOLUTELY! The food, art, culture and amount of things to do is astounding and on par with any major US city. But if you do visit in late October next year, or any, be warned…the Zombie hordes may be out and lusting for brains!

Your Gringo in Mexico,

The third annual Zombie Walk was organized by Cristian Mandujano, a Tijuana local, and was attended by over 8,000 undead this year. Participants only needed to bring canned goods to enter, which were donated to local children and senior centers.
