Providence! Federal Hill has fine Italian restaurants.
Maybe I shall try some SW pizza to 'broaden my horizons'.

Cheap Americano tshirts can go a long way and save $$$ vs. bribe money when solicited.

You can get any cheapo Americano t-shirtso ato theo localo Wal-Marto. LOL!

You can get that same cheap shirt at a local tiangis flea market or on the main street of any little tiny town on a Sunday afternoon. Along with every Beatles album ever recorded, the complete U2 catalog, and some naked pics of La Trevi thrown in to sweeten the deal.

So thanks to this thread, my group was able to get into and out of Mexico pretty effortlessly a few weeks ago. We did the vehicle permits online through the Banjercito website. We entered through Laredo TX and came out in Douglas AZ.

So I have a question now regarding Baja. Do you require the same vehicle permits to get into Baja, or is it treated differently since it's kinda sorta part of California?

Vehicle permits not required in Baja, western Sonora state, and the border zone.

It's kinda sorta part of Mexico. It's Baja California, and the one in the United States is Alta California. A whole different country, maybe even a whole different world.
Anyway, no vehicle permit needed, but a tourist visa card at $25 needed if you go south of ... well, Baja Norte? If you go all the way to Cabo or La Paz, you are supposed to have the tourist card. It's good for six months.

Yea I don't know about that? I've been to L.A and I've been to Cabo, I didn't see a whole lot of deference...
except in Cabo the prices are higher, and they speak better english....

You expect people to defer to you everywhere you go?

I've been wanting to make that comment, but I figured I'd get slammed.

I can make that comment. I don't get any deference anywhere I go either.
