Miles and Miles of Dentists
Yesterday we made the quick trip from Yuma, Arizona, USA to Los Algodones, Baja California Norte, Mexico, the land of dentists, optical stores, Farmacias (drug stores) and liquor stores. We had no idea what to expect. After the past three winters deep in Mexico we were certainly ready to be disappointed. We were not. The people are exactly the same; All big smiles and warm hearts. Exactly the same as the folks in any other corner of the country.
Marilyn needs a new pair of glasses, we are packing some left over pesos, it would be like getting glasses for “almost free today” as the Mexican vendors love to say. We were travelling with Dale and Sheila, Ken and Jo. Most of our party were either there for the optical stores or the dentists. Dale and I were in charge of getting a table in the sun at an outdoor bar. All goals were achieved: Dale and I polished up our tans while enjoying a couple of cold Pacificos with lime. The rest of our group scored at their dentists, while Marilyn bought two pair of glasses for less than $200.
The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
