Thursday, February 2 – We traveled from Yuma, AZ, the short distance to Algodones, MX, this morning. We wanted to find the dentist office where we have an appointment tomorrow to get our teeth cleaned. We also planned to do a little sightseeing and window shopping.
We have been to Mexico border cites numerous times especially Los Algodones and Nuevo Progresso (across the border in South Texas). We found the street merchants here in Algodones a little more aggressive than those in Progresso and prices a little higher. It's still a fun experience.
The following photos are just a glimpse of Los Algodones, MX.
They have some beautiful patio areas to enjoy food and drink.
We did purchase a couple gifts, and Paul got a couple prescriptions filled. The margaritas were big and great too!
We spent about three hours strolling around town before we decided it was time to get in line for the trip across the border to re-enter the U.S. This is another difference between the two Mexican cities. It takes about 10-15 minutes to cross at Nuevo Progresso. We spent over an hour waiting in line today at Los Algodones. This was the case the last two times we crossed here in the past. Something we can't figure out.
We will tell you about our dentist experience in the next post.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
