Todays news, 26 bodies found near the border. You really want to go do tacos in Mexico? I have Mexican birthed friends that won't go back.
You mean this?
At least 23 people killed in Mexican border city - KFVS12 News & Weather Cape Girardeau, Carbondale, Poplar Bluff
This was about 1500 miles from Tijuana. And they seem to have been targeted as part of a war between narco gangs:

I'm well aware of the safety issues, but the dozens of websites I've perused all indicate that outside Tijuana, Baja California is quite safe. Safer than Oakland, anyway... and I used to work there.
But thanks for your concern & for your kind offer!
