This is seen at the end of the Cordova Bridge.
Hi everyone! I hope your week is starting off great! I’m sorry I haven’t been writing in the blog as much in the last couple of weeks. I’ve been doing a lot of freelance projects and looking for a full-time job. My son just got out of school on Friday. My baby is officially a sixth grader! Seriously, where does the time go? I’m still going to be blogging but maybe not as much for the next few weeks. I still plan on doing Romantic Tuesday every week and other posts during the week. I’m going to try blogging at least 2-3, maybe 4 times a week if time permits.
If you follow me on social media, you might recall me talking about going to Mexico last week. Me and my boyfriend decided to go to Ciudad, Juarez last Tuesday. To be honest, I never thought I’d ever cross over to Mexico again. A lot of my friends and family go shopping or to the doctor or dentist in Juarez. People I know live in Juarez but come and work in the U.S. Juarez is 45 minutes away from me. In recent years, there was a lot of violence towards women and the drug cartel issues. You still hear about it going on in the news but not as much as it was some years back. I decided to start seeing a doctor over there. Healthcare over there is SO much less expensive than the U.S. An average doctor’s appointment for me here in the U.S. is $200. In Mexico, it’s $40. Going to the dentist is also a lot less than here. Although we didn’t go shopping or eat there, we plan on doing so another time. Juarez has changed SO much since the last time I was there. I hadn’t been to Juarez in about 13 years. I have many memories of partying, shopping and eating with my friends and family. I hope I can start making more memories in Juarez. Here’s a few photos we took crossing over the Cordova Bridge and in the taxi. We don’t really know our way around so we cross the bridge walking and take a taxi to the doctor. More photos and adventures in Juarez to come in the near future! 🙂 P.S. U.S. Customs requires your drivers license and sometimes your birth certificate to cross back into the U.S.
