I never got permission for pictures so won't post any. We arrived at the parking lot on the US side and parked P & H's duelly in front of a Ford Duelly. Duelling Duellies.
We walked into Los Algadones at about 11:30 so decided to have lunch before we got going on our shopping.
There is a lovely open air dining area which is kind of like a town square in the middle of the tourist area. We ate there last year and enjoyed it so we went back again this year. It was good again, and the Margaritas are good.
|Too many choices|
|Oh Wow!!! MMM good|
|Harold had a Pacifico Cervaza|
As we were walking along I spotted this bike with the custom spokes. After seeing this one I noticed quite a few around town. I thought it was unique.
We walked quite a distance and ended up in a wheat field. Harold being an ex farmer had to have a look at the crop and inspect the irrigation system. He reported that this was a nice crop.
As we walked back we remarked how much poverty there seemed to be here. I don't like taking pictures of that part but did notice a gated house that must belong to someone of some wealth. The guard dog did not even stir as we walked by.
Once we got back closer to the touristy area we were thirsty so stopped for a drink. I had a freshly squeezed orange juice at a little shop, which was a treat for me.
|Always love the colours|
We saw a little coffee shop and I really had to do a double take. For a moment I thought we had discovered a Tim Hortons in Mexico.
Here is the Tim Hortons logo that looks quite similar.
The vendors never end. Even as we were lined up for our 1 hour and 15 minute wait to get across the border they kept trying to sell us stuff. Three of us bought hats while waiting and I paid $13 Harold paid $12 bucks and the guy behind me paid $11 bucks. I guess I got ripped off.
We spread our bargains out on the table when we got home and here are our treasures. Its always fun to go to Mexico.
