Infinite Miles Per Gallon

A journal of an online road trip, because I'm too poor to afford gas.
San Ysidro is about a square mile region of San Diego, that sits directly above the border stop between the United States and Mexico.  I don’t think anyone famous came from here… the most notable thing that happened in the region’s history was that a guy went nuts in 1984 and killed 21 people at a McDonald’s.  They tore that down so I think the most noteworthy place is now the outlet mall which is just a few blocks west of the border crossing.  It’s called Las Americas Premium outlets.  The Yelp reviews seem generally positive although there seems to be a lot of xenophobic comments about some of the clientele considering it’s located about a football field’s length from the border.
