Inauguration Day in Mexicali

As Barrack Obama was being sworn into office, I was talking with an expert on ecology and biodiversity in the border region, Professor Landeros of the Autonomous University of Baja California, in Mexicali. He told me about the state of the borderlands and his hope for them in the future.

Friendship Park Communion Continues

Yesterday I drove from midtown San Diego a half an hour south to Border Field State Park to observe an activist and community ritual that has been happening every Sunday for the last 6 months. John Fanestil and other San Diegans meet in a parking lot a mile north of the Mexican/U.S. border and then walk to the beach, then down it to the sand-embedded border wall, and then up a short hill to the top of a mesa where the historic Friendship Park has been located as a monument to international relations since the early 70s.

In San Diego

As I write this I sit in a house in the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego, charging batteries and otherwise preparing for shooting at Friendship Park this afternoon. I've also been continuing to configure this web site, which I think will be a slowly evolving process.

Hitting the Road

Today the "Transition in the Borderlands?" project (working title) will officially get rolling as I head from Tucson to San Diego. Tomorrow I plan to be at the weekly interfaith communion at Friendship Park that John Fanestil and other clergy have been doing. Since the Border Patrol and wall construction contractors have started to demolish the park a couple of weeks ago, there's no telling when this will be cut short.
