|The beautiful, artistic colours....|
Jeanette and I chose to get our hair clipped. We found a great little hair dressing shop and, for the very first time ever, we had our hair cuts while sitting side by each. With tip and service charges, we left $10 at the till before heading to a nice open air restaurant for some well earned lunch.
|Our lunch spot....featuring really good entertainment.|
|The tourists had this large outdoor facility loaded to the gills. It was a busy place.|
|These young fellas work well to get the job done.|
Back to the optometrist clinic and my glasses are returned from the lab but.....and it's a major one, the lenses were cut and shaved but no longer fit the frame properly. That was clearly not acceptable to me. To cut this story really short, by 4:15 pm, - following so many return trips to the lab - I refused to accept a botched up pair of glasses. I was not a happy camper! Having spent the entire day there was not my idea of time well spent.

|Begging for money....|
|Many use little babies and young kids to tempt one to give. It's endless begging for money. It's painful to watch....but, it's part of the way they live.|
When our day started, we anticipated crossing in to Algodones, gather our purchases, have lunch, scoot out and back into the US by 1:00 pm. Not to be!
Today is reserved for running those errands, we had planned for, yesterday afternoon. By 2:00 pm, I'll drop by Hector's RV site and we'll drive off to Coyote Wash for 18 holes of well deserved golf, in a pastoral and peaceful environment.
And that's the way it's been! Thanks for dropping by.
