San Diego CityBeat has given its annual Summer Guide a creative twist this year by designing an interactive "Choose Your Own Summer Adventure" issue for readers.
Kinsee Morlan "lays her head down in one country, earns her bread and reputation in another, and co-runs an arts collective somewhere in between," SignOnSanDiego.com, an online project of the San Diego Union-Tribune, writes. Morlan has lived in Tijuana for close to two years while working at CityBeat. She says while working at the local NBC affiliate to supplement her CityBeat income, she was asked to do a story on a waterskiing squirrel, and realized she had to figure out a way to "not have a horrible part-time job and just work at CityBeat." Moving to Tijuana, which has much lower rents than San Diego, was her answer, and she's been there ever since.
