Algodones and the Dentist Again

At least we were closer to the border this time and my first appointment was not until 11:30am. We didn't have to wait long to see the dentist and then we were off to find a spot for lunch. Michael had noticed an outdoor restaurant earlier and we decided to give it a try--I had fish tacos and Michael had his normal chili rellones. It was a fun place with music and sunshine and people dancing--one older couple danced and looked as if they were having so much fun. Then it was back to the dentist followed by another stop at the purple pharmacy again.

An Algodones Street
Kind of looks like he belongs in Mexico, doesn't he??
And, the most dreaded part of going to Mexico, the leaving. Notice the awning and all the nice plants--at least the Mexican people try to make it easier on us. It took us one and a half hours of standing in line to get back on US soil today. We did have the pleasure of talking to some very interesting folks in line today--this gentleman told me he was 91 years old--he looked 71!! He has lived a very interesting life--retired military, a couple of other jobs, then retired CIA! He and his companion (they both knew each other as couples when their respective spouses were alive then got together a couple of years following the death of both their spouses) travel to AZ every year from Montana in a motorhome at 91!!! He was just a delight to talk to. We also talked to a Canadian lady and a man who travel from WA to AZ every winter--sure made the time go by faster today and it was way cooler than it was last Thursday.
