What to say. . .I took Lillia to Mexico as a reward her for practicing her Spanish for 10 days in a row.  We went to the Mission Plaza Mall and took pictures.  The mall looked very modern and featured more entertainment than shopping opportunities.  It had an ice skating rink with a sledding run and rock wall, three arcades, including one with carnival rides, a movie theater, and a trampoline park.  No one there spoke English so we got some good practice speaking Spanish, especially when my GPS stopped working and we got lost and had to ask for directions a few times, in a very seedy part of Juarez.  FYI, your phone will have service as long you stay within a mile or two of the border.  Beyond that . . . not so much.

In any case, all’s well that ends well and we got to meet both the simpsons and the Joker (the scary Heath Ledger one).
