Thelma and Louise Hit MEXICO!

Yesterday, hubby dropped Sandy and I off at the border to Mexico while he headed off to Yuma!

Looks like we are off to the slammer for sure!  I’m not going to kid you, it LOOKED pretty scary going off to Los Algodones, Mexico…and the other side didn’t look much better!  But once we hit the vendors, it was all good!!


We crossed over early in the morning….and did a lot of this!


It was a totally different world!


This fella on the right was painting while his friend was selling…we heard a lot of “come…no pressure…you want two?”


I ended up with TWO pairs of silver earrings, TWO baskets of strawberries, TWO bottles of vanilla and some trinkets for our grandson.  It was great fun!  But by 11am it was getting hot…so it was off to the square in the middle of Algodones where the band was playing…ARREEBAH


And of course our throats were parched from all that bartering …


The nachos went down mighty fine too!! 

I’m telling you, no matter where Thelma and Louise go, they ALWAYS have fun!

Now it’s back over the border and home…and time for a long siesta!!

Adios amigos…and muchos stitching!~P


  1. Yes, you do have fun wherever you go! Looks like a really fun and interesting place to visit.

  2. Thank you for sharing all those beautiful moments!

  3. Good for you guys!!! Glad you had fun, we are heading over for dental visits mid-March, might be mighty HOT by then!

  4. Glad you kept hydrated after all that bartering.

  5. Did you lots of good deals? Glad you 2 had fun! Always an adventure with you 2! ;-)

  6. I'd go just for the Margaritas! Glad you had a fun day, I hope Montezuma didn't come home with you.

  7. LOL! Love reading your posts!
    Best wishes!

  8. I remember taking a bus trip across from San Diego with my mom and brother when he was on Spring Break. I recall being shouted out as I walked away from a table of silver plated rings that they would give me a good deal for two...I didn't even want one!

    Lots of colours and I remember smelling the scent of orange blossoms in the air while we drove through California in March.

  9. Hola! What an adventuresome day! It bought back great memories of my two week holiday camping around Mexico. I also acquired some silver on my travels around Mexico.There is two rings i bought there that i still wear some many, many years later.

  10. That sounds like a fun day, though I can imagine how scary it is, crossing that border, lol. I watch too many tv shows.


  11. Glad you had such a fun day, reminds me of when I went to Tiajuana year ago
