Wednesday, January 28  - We headed out of the country today. We went to Los Algodones, Mexico. We made this trip five years ago during our last visit to Yuma.

Now that is one big bottle of Tequila!

We watched three guys hand-paint vases, pictures, stones, etc. They do beautiful work. So beautiful, Marsha had to make a purchase of a vase she can’t live without….geesh!

As a matter of fact, we've become quite the Mexico border town visitors the last five or six years visiting dentists. We couldn't get an appointment with our past dentist in Los Algodones, so we tried a new dentist at Oasis Dentistry, Dr. Edwardo, and were very pleased.

Oasis Dentistry

This was the most modern, high tech dentist office we've ever visited, including our previous dentists back in Ohio. All the latest equipment and all very new. Paul was especially impressed with the camera the dentist used to show Paul the inside of his mouth. It was about the size of a pencil with a lighted tip. No need to try to see a reflection in that over-head light....ha ha!

Several nice waiting rooms with a free coffee machine.

We both got cleanings and Paul had x-rays and a thorough exam. Only $35.00/each. The dentist did suggest additional work for Paul, but he's going to wait until we visit our dentist in Nuevo Progresso, MX, to get a second opinion.

After our dentist visits we met Karla and Eric and Sandie and Jim for lunch. Those clean polished teeth didn't last too long. We enjoyed our lunch and a couple Margaritas with friends.

Jim and Sandie were heading home so we did a little shopping with Karla and Eric. Karla had ordered new glasses so we shopped awhile and then visited the Mercado and listened to the music while the glasses were made. We even did some dancing. What a fun time!

That’s how they make Margaritas in Mexico….delicious!Los Algodones, MX

Not sure Eric knew what he was getting into shopping with us. We ended up buying a clay bird bath - can you believe that!

Well, guess who had to help Paul carry the pieces back across the border? The sales guy carried it to the border, but we still had a ways to go to get to the truck. The worst part was there was a long line of people heading north so we had to wait in line for about an hour. Luckily, we bumped into Ruth and Kevin in line saving us a spot and saving us about a 30 minute longer wait. Now, where the heck will be store that bird bath for the trip to Ohio?

Thanks for stopping by.Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
