I was looking for some Lavadora redondas and found this cute little portable pair instead, I’m throwing it up here because I am literally on the other side of the ocean and I think this would look good in someone’s home

Nice Set

I wonder if customs at the border would pull both machines apart looking for drugs.

You never know, the only way is to try out and find it,

Although they will probably try the detector dog first and go from there

I have the set in Almond

Look exactly like the 1994 models in my motorhome. They have been excellent.

I would love to add those to my collection! My daughter and son-in-law live in Imperial Beach (San Diego) and are terrified to go across the border, otherwise I’d ask them to get them for me. I don’t have the time to drive from Northern California to get them. Do we have any Mexican members?

We probably mate, we’ve got them from South America

So I’m sure that somebody had joined it from just south of the border

What's so terrifying about Tijuana?  Not only is the immediate border area an entertaining curiosity, but seeing as how it's one of the largest metro areas in Mexico, it has art and cultural offerings if you venture into the actual city.

I hear they have a pretty interesting donkey act.

What’s So Terrifying About Tijuana?

The news lately has been filled with the drug cartel violence in Mexico, and its found its way to Tijuana now too. Its not like the old days anymore when you could take a leisurely walk across the border and spend the day walking around Tijuana unmolested. Even though the border has remained open it doesn’t seem like its the best time to visit Tijuana right now.


See the attached link.

Thanks Eddie,

I had heard about trouble down towards Ensenada but nothing about the cities and towns closer to the border.  I do know that the stretch along the coast between the border and southern Ensenada has exploded with vacation homes belonging to gringos from SoCal, which are far more affordable than any coastal properties in Alta California.


I have not been inclined to venture too far into Mexico for many years now, but I thought Tijuana was relatively safe.  At this point it sounds like there's no place safe in Mexico, which is really tragic.  I've been to both coasts and several inland destinations, including attending summer school in Guadalajara after graduating from high school and hopping our way from the Bay Area down to Oaxaca in a single engine plane with a pilot friend and two others in late 1981.  At least I have some great memories from my various travels and experiences down there.
