The last few years we have been making an annual trip to Algodones MX (near Yuma AZ) to buy reasonably priced Mexican medications. Both of us take omeprazol for acid reflux. A 4 month’s supply is only $4.00. Most generic non-narcotic drugs also are available. Algodones has many dentists and optometrists catering to us Gringos, and even more souvenir stands. It is a day trip for us of about 400 miles. This November we took another couple in our Toyota Prius and got 50 mpg for the whole trip.

It is interesting to watch painters paint patterns, pictures and designs on items – clay pots, mailboxes, and kerosene lanterns, among other things - using spray paint.
