Good morning guys, from San Ysidro just
south of San Diego. We have made a run to the border today to score some drugs. No
not those kind of drugs! Prescription drugs and Mexico is this amazing
resource if you’re in the area to go get prescription meds. At like a fraction of
the cost. So we thought we’d take you down on our little experience. And also
to keep things fresh, I’m gonna do all our b-roll footage on the hero 5 black
and 1080p at 80 frames per second. So I normally don’t slow things down but… I’m
gonna try seeing what the slow-motion thing is all about! Correction we’re
gonna shoot 1080p at 60 frames per second. I hit the 80 and that took it to
super view which gives you that kind of gross
GoPro fish eye look but… One of the new features is they have a linear setting.
So it looks more like that! Alright so we use the El chaparral, new
border crossing. It’s right next to ped West, which is the new crossing back into
the States. And we’re gonna hit up this first
Pharmacia and you know some may have what you need some may not have what you
need. But also this one might be a little more expensive because it’s the very
first one right when you cross the border! Alright guys, well it looks like this
place has what we came for and at a very reasonable price! Through years of
experience we kind of know what things should be going for. But you know if you
ask yourself why in the heck would you come to Mexico or Tijuana or any of the
border towns for these drugs, it’s you know…. Purely out of saving money and
convenience and also… You know, if you’re a prepper or even if you’re a traveller.
Like a full time traveller like us who find ourselves in remote locations, it
would not hurt to have a base level of some meds! Now keep in mind you’re not
going to be getting the Oakley Ides here and taking them across the border. And
sometimes in the past we’ve been asked for a prescription here at the pharmacy
and then…. They send you over to a doctor’s office next door. They charge
you ten bucks and they give you a script! Not all that complicated but yeah, you
know us! We travel a lot. We like to have things on hand for emergencies. And even
if you’re not a medical professional, if here…. What is it? A pinch. Get the book… I’m sure there’s a book out there called the idiots guide to giving yourself
pharmaceuticals, I don’t know! But there is something out there where if
everything went wrong and you needed it you would be able to treat yourself! And if
you need help in other departments you can score that down here in Mexico…..
Come on let’s go, keep walking, keep walking…. Just kidding! There’s nothing illegal that we did! For
reference, it was about 18% of what retail prices in the States so…. Depending
on how good your insurance is.. You know I think it’s a good deal to come down here!
Now, hey….. The big question honey… Oh put it on…Do
we have a meal while we’re down here? And risk a longer wait time at ahh….PedWest because right now we went online and PedWest….You can check all the
border wait times. It’s no weight at all so…. We’re safe right now! But it’s only
8:30 in the morning so I think we can afford the time to go have a nice little
breakfast in TJ…. Alright this little adventure is gonna require a taxicab… Are you a taxi driver?… What?… Are you, you drive taxi?
But you know where we’re going! He doesn’t know where we’re
going! Can we jump in your taxi? Honey I think it’s wise…..
Make sure your taxi driver knows where they’re going! And if time is on your side and you’re
feeling a little bit adventurous… We’ve even taken the public transportation
buses and those are so cheap! And it’s… It’s a very authentic, fun experience but
times not on our side today because we don’t want to have a long wait at the
border! 10 bucks… 10 bucks?No… 10 bucks?.. 7 bucks No change…No change for 200 pesos? You have change
for American…. American change…So lesson number 2 Benny; Ask how much before we
get in the taxi! It is only 1.2 miles or 2 kilometres!
I’m just saying you’re giving tips so that’s number 2…
Well he totally tried giving us the gringo rate?
Call them out on it. Got it down 30%… It’s a good coffee!…Mhhh…. Yeah, that’s a unique omelette!…. Your
pancakes….Alright! So I ordered the chorizo omelet and chorizo it’s like a
Mexican sausage and …I think it might have a little organ meat or something.
I’m not sure but it tastes so good! These seasonings are amazing!…. Okay.
Well breakfast hit the spot! That place was called Los chilaquiles which are a
very traditional Mexican breakfast! Which they’re kind of like soft, cooked
tortilla chips.They are not full-blown crispy like a tortilla chip with various sauces
over them. I don’t know. I’ve never really been able to embrace it. I’ve had the sauces
are good but just…. I don’t know, it’s just kind of weird. It’s like putting sauce
over french fries… I just don’t feel the vibe! Yes exactly! So since the taxi driver kind of
tried to rip us off on our way here, we thought we’d also share another form of
transportation called uber!…. Uber?…So the uber app told us
that estimated that this ride would be around 45 pesos. Which is somewhere
between two and three bucks! A lot better deal than what we got with
taxi driver on the way over here! So it’s kind of nice because it’s a set price.
You get an estimate before they pick you up. There are buses and stuff that you
can take here in Tijuana but…. We’re getting back to the border which is just
easier to grab an uber or a taxi or something…. But this is the border line
for the San Ysidro crossing… Though we’re in a completely different lane that just
takes you up closer to the border. But doesn’t quite put you in that line! I
just checked the app for Customs and Border Protection and the wait at the
PedWest crossing is only five minutes. You can’t
beat that! Easy enough right here where we all
started!…. Now we got to smuggle these drugs back across the border.
It’s not smuggling guys! We’ve never been asked to show prescriptions on entry
into the states… They’ve occasionally asked to see what
we have. And you know, you just say it’s for yourself. Your personal use but it’s
never been an issue! Alright guys, we made it! That was easy,
that was fun! That was not ordinary! Which is kind of some good key points to live
in your life…. It wasn’t a five-minute wait
but that PedWest is spot on! It was easy quick, it’s nice and clean and new. Great way
to get back across the border!… Wait wait to cross Camino de la plaza at virginia
wait…. Camino de la plaza walk sign is on the cross
Camino de la plaza…. Okay! Back in the car we’re heading back to Ben’s dad’s
house ahhh….One little note for you…. We don’t park down here very often so
it’s been a long time since we paid for parking here. We did choose to park and
in the most convenient location possible. So we knew we’d pay and you really do
pay for convenience! Parking was more than breakfast. It cost $15 for the three
hours that we were down there so…. Something to keep in mind, the trolley is
a great alternative if you don’t want to come down here and park. Or bring your car
pay the price. If you got the day and the time. go for it! It’s really fun to! I
think we’re gonna call it a day here on the vlog and go get some other stuff
done! We’ve got a busy week ahead… Thank you for joining us on our little
side trip in New Mexico. Be sure to hit that SUBSCRIBE button and that way you
can see what we’re up to tomorrow. You definitely gonna want to join us! Bye…
