Algodones, Mexico High 66 Low 37
I finally got out of the house. It’s been so cold I’ve been hibernating. Paula was going to make a run down to Mexico and asked me if I’d like to ride along. So I said sure.
And I’m really glad I said yes. It’s about a four hour drive so that gave us a great opportunity to get completely caught up on our lives and solve all the world’s problems.
I was hoping to find some more roadrunners like we already have or some cute turtles. But I didn’t really see anything I liked. Paula checked out a couple of t-shirts but she didn’t find anything she wanted either.
By this time we were really hungry so we stopped at the Plaza to have lunch.
We were lucky enough to find a table in the sun because it was cold in the shade.
There was a band playing and this lady was dancing for tips.
We had a really good lunch. I have tacos with rice and beans and Paula had carne asada that she said was as good as it looked.
After lunch we headed to the Purple Pharmacy so I could get some prilosec and then we were ready to head back to the US.
This is only a small part of the line to get across the border that awaited us.
Things were moving slowly because of the Government shutdown. The Border Patrol agents were all working for no pay and there were only two of them. However, the line moved faster than I thought it would. It only took us about an hour. Paula was kind enough to do all the standing and let me sit as much as possible and I sure do appreciate that.
I had such a good time I think I just may have to do it again if Paula decides to head down that way.
