In his first few days in Tijuana, Adam checked into a hotel in the central district, visited the migrant shelter and took a stroll along the western-most part of the border fence where metal meets the ocean waters(picture above). The postings, called “Mexico border diary,” provide a traveller’s perspective of life along the border. The latest border diary page is from Mexicali. (addition: The “border diary” seems to have prompted some critical response for its description of Tijuana. See comments below…)
Thomson’s project involves writing more standard news stories about border issues – such as this one from the Texas border – in what’s described as a series on “the changing nature of the US-Mexico border, on communities being torn apart by restrictive U.S. policies,” according to the paper’s web site.
