Urbanscapes of Mexico - Tijuana 

Tijuana is a relatively new city, by Mexican standards being founded only in 1889 along the United States Mexico border. It encompasses 246 square miles and has a population of more than 1.7 million people. Since the 1980′s the city’s population has nearly quadrupled in size adding stress on infrastructure and development. Many informal settlements surround the city in a central ring, though new planned suburban divisions can now be found even further in the periphery. 

Tijuana’s unique position along the American border has allowed it to become a multinational city as many people from other parts of the republic and Central America located here in hopes of achieving the Mexican or American dream. Many people who live in Tijuana work across the American border in cites like San Diego and vice versa. Many tourists visit Tijuana and surrounding cities such as Rosario adding to its international status. Tijuana like other cities in northern Mexico like Monterrey have become the new lands of opportunity though they have been been subject to cartel violence. 

The socioeconomic form of Tijuana is a mix of extreme poverty and wealth. Many new developments can be found throughout the city along side neglected properties in the urban core. The physical form of the city is influenced by its location on hilly terrain which sets a particular challenge for a cohesive urban form.  Tijuana has rapidly grown to become one of Mexico’s leading cities in what seems the blink of an eye. if current trends continue it is set to surpass other leading cities such as Puebla and Guadalajara. 

ATTENTION PPL FROM BAJA CALIFORNIA, IMPERIAL VALLEY AND SAN DIEGO AREA!!!

Me enteré hace un par de días que hay una página web que está siendo circulada con naked selfies de mujeres, con sus nombres completos, and sometimes even e-mail addresses. They are even fucking POSTING PICTURES OF REGULAR GIRLS AND REQUESTING FOR NAKED PICTURES OF THEM.


THIS IS MAKING THE ROUNDS ONLINE AND A LOT OF EMPLOYERS ARE TAKING NOTICE, so it’s going to have a huge social repercussion. 


I’VE HEARD A LOT OF GUYS (and girls too) SAYING *SURPRISE SURPRISE* THAT THE SOLUTION IS SELF-RESPECT AND THERE’S A LOT OF SLUT SHAMING GOING ON.


We shouldn’t have to censor ourselves just because some people don’t have basic decency, but we still gotta protect ourselves.


SO, si mandan selfies, ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR FACE ISN’T IN THE PICTURE. DO THAT TRICK ABOUT PUTTING DIFFERENT FILTERS ON THE PICTURE, THAT WAY YOU KNOW WHO LEAKED IT IN THE WORST CASE SCENARIO.
BABIES, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, BE VERY CAREFUL ON WHO YOU SEND THE PICTURE TO, REMEMBER THERE ARE A LOT OF ASSHOLES OUT THERE.


I’M NOT GONNA LINK THE WEBSITE, BUT IF YOU’VE SENT SELFIES TO SOMEONE AND YOU’RE SCARED YOU MIGHT BE ON IT, I COULD SEND YOU THE SITE THROUGH INBOX, BC SERIOUSLY, THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE. 


DON’T HESITATE TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION ON THIS, AS FAR AS I’VE HEARD, THERE ARE PICTURES OF MINORS THERE TOO.
