CROSSING SOUTH is a travel show that explores Tijuana and Northern Baja.

Bilingual travel companion and host, Jorge Meraz, takes you on a journey and demystifies the area. Get to know the people, vernacular, foods, customs and places frequented by the locals.

On this episode, holding birds, and feeding hippos are just some of the interesting things to do at the Mexicali Zoo. You've got to love how you can interact with these animals South of the border.

We also sample beer at the Cucapa Brewery, and eat good food at Las Campanas restaurant.

Lastly, we cool off from the Mexicali heat with a refreshing "Raspado" Ice treat.
