  1. Hi Rick, I watched the tv show from create program when you traveled to Tijuana-Rosarito
    and I recorded but by mistake I erased and I don’t have the name of the places you were
    eating, can you send me the names?, because I’m going soon to there and I want to taste
    the tacos because they look very good on tv. Thank you so much for showing my wonderful Mexico to the world. EV.
