This is the wall in Playas de Tijuana where it divides what used to be a binational park enjoyed by the people of Mexico & the United States much as similar parks are still enjoyed by the people of Canada & the United States.

Aqui esta' el muro en Playas de Tijuana donde divida el parque binacional. La gente de Mexico y los Estados Unidos puede disfrutar juntos no mas. Hay parques similares entre los Estados Unidos y Canada pero sin muros todavia donde la gente de las dos naciones puede disfrutar juntos.

On the Mexican side there is a monument that says: "Close to this site is the first point of the border between Mexico & the United States established the 10th of October 1849. Today the flag of Mexico is raised again to symbolize friendship between the people of Mexico & the United States and to commemorate the idea of a natural park together on both sides of the border. September 27, 1974. National Program of Nature Parks. Secretary of Public Works." Well, you can see that that idea didn't survive the Clinton administration and NAFTA and with the arrival of the wall the flag and flagpole were removed. Ironically the monument remains.
Al lado Mexicano hay un monumento celebrar por la bandera de Mexico la amistad entre Mexico y los Estados Unidos y la idea de un parque natural binacional . (Puede leerlo en espan~ol por hacer un "clic" en la photo.) Pues, la idea no sobrevivio' la administracion de Clinton ni el TLC y con la llegada del muro sacaron la bandera y su palo. El monumento sobrevive ironicamente.
