I’m in Tucson for a family gathering to ring in the new year. (High today in Kansas City – 22 F. High today in Tucson – 65 F. Yeah, we made the right decision.)
Yesterday we made the short trip down I-19 to the Mexican border to experience the culture of Nogales. Just inside the border we were welcomed with this sign:
One of the first things I noticed – the Mexicans have different standards of esthetics and safety in their electrical wiring.
We had lunch at an upscale restaurant called LaRoca, complete with strolling musicians.

Before returning the USA, we took a couple of pictures of the border wall itself. This wall is the dividing line between nations, languages, cultures, currency, economies, and much more.
