Common Sunflower
Helianthus annuus

We left Quartzsite last Saturday and came down to the Yuma area for dental work and eye glasses over the border at Algodones. We checked into the Sleepy Hollow RV Park which is located less than a mile from the border.

Earl's appointment with Dra. Gabriela Gonzales Murillo at Dental Americano was on Tuesday at 11:30 AM. The only thing the doctor did this day was to take impressions for Earl's new partial. They will be ready on Friday and, at that time, Earl will have his teeth cleaned.

We stopped for lunch at a restaurant close to the dentist's office (don't remember the name) and then stopped at a local vendor to buy Earl a new wallet.

Today we went back over the border to have our eyes checked and get new glasses at Best Optical.

It sure is less expensive to have this work done in Mexico...today we spent about half what we've spent at each of the last two eye doctors here in the U.S. and Earl's partial was a lot less than what he would have spent had he had the work done in the U.S.

We did go into Yuma while we've been here to do shopping at Wal Mart and Staples and had lunch at Wendy's.

Thanks so much, Linda, for also including the info for the dentist and eye doctor. That is so helpful for those of us who would not know who to go to.
Keep on enjoying the fulltime lifestyle!

Can you comment on the issues with violence, or the lack thereof, along the border in Mexico?

Bill, I read a lot of RV forums, and never have I heard about violence in Algodones. I'm positive that if Algodones was having problems with drug lords/gangs (like Palomas south of Columbus, NM), it would be all over the RV forums.
