I am an ex nycer as well.. took time to get used to getting around, and yes I broke down years ago and got a vehicle. Now I drive all over the place.

I think there are busses that run up and down the strip and if worse comes to worse you can always call a cab

I have a few friends who used Job Connect to get pretty decent jobs.. they offer a good service and the trop is fairly easy to get to as well.
Uh, Chinga...you do know your user name is the "F" word in Español don't you?

Word:
En Chinga

Meaning: haste, fast, freakin' quick, in a hurry, yes it does have "other" meanings however that is not what I was going for..

Muy bueno. You do speak Spanish very well. Mi no hablo Español, mi hablo a little Tex-Mex. Mi Español es muy malo. So I think I know what you said but you may have insulted me too for all I know. Anyway, I can order another beer and find the bathroom in Mexico.
Pero, Chinga, oye mi; my dictionary doesn't have your definition, only the dirty words.
We had a dog we named Chulito, or Chulo for short. When I'd tell some people his name they would look at me like why would you call your dog a pimp. Others would see him pass by and say, "¡Ay! chulito", which is why we called him cutie in the first place. So ya can't win can ya?

Just before I got to my job in Laredo they had a lady that had been doing an interview show there. One day she was interviewing the mayor of Nuevo Laredo, across the river, and after they spoke in English for a while she asked him if he wanted to say anything in "Mexican"...that was the end of her interviewing career.
