I certainly would. In fact, I would be more inclined to include those rather than Hong Kong-Shenzhen based on your reasoning because there is a constant flow of people crossing the U.S.-Mexican Border.

I think Tokyo is sweet, gets my vote. London and NYC are also really neat, but Tokyo is a little above and beyond in this case.

alright then, I've seen a few lists that have included TJ with SD's population so I guess you're not alone in that respect. There is a constant flow but it's not a free or fast one, many times border waits to get into SD during rush hour are up to 2 hours.

Toronto and Sydney have metro populations that are smaller than Dallas or Atlanta. They're certainly not mega-cities!
