Baja California governor speaking at UCSD Thursday (July 23)


The Institute of the Americas at the University of  California San Diego holds on Thursday another of its “Tequila Talks,” this time with Baja California Governor Jose Guadalupe Osuna Millan (right), who will speak about public security issues and challenges  along the border.

Still salivating from the Baja culinary trip I took this weekend (see previous post), I would be tempted to ask him about what are his favorite foods to eat south of the border.

If you are a member of the general public, register and pay here for the event, which takes place Thursday (July 23) . It costs $10 for the general public, but is free for journalists, teachers and students who can sign up here.

The presentation will be in Spanish, and it starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Weaver Conference Center at UCSD-Institute of the Americas.   Get directions and parking instructions here: http://www.iamericas.org/en/about/latest/map.html).

I haven’t seen the governor in a while, but I send him my greetings. This photo (above) is from a Tijuana holiday gathering in December, 2007, shortly after he took office and when I told him I would be leaving The San Diego-Union Tribune after seven years covering the border beat. You can read a story about him here that was written that same year by my Tijuana colleague Sandra Dibble.
