Tijuana zebras have been a popular tourist attraction in Tijuana, Mexico, a city that borders the United States, since the 1940s.

The Tijuana painted donkey, or Tijuana Zebra, came about some time in the middle of the twentieth century. The reason for painting the donkeys was to ensure that the animal be seen in photographs. Since the donkeys were mostly white, on sunny days with the old black and white cameras the donkey would be seen as a ghostly figure. A long-time tourist staple, the donkeys live on a hillside below the Casa de la Cultura in Tijuana.

    You picked up on that good walksoft . Long story but it was a sad time for our family when this was taken . It was a hasty trip I took with my Mom to go to CA anyway we tried to make best of it and I got great time with my Mom and one more walk on the beach . It was last time I ever flew again . and that's another story :-)
