EIGHT MILES
After a few hours in Yuma, we quickly learned that Mexico was a short eight miles away. As you can imagine, we added a border crossing to our itinerary faster than you can say margarita.

ALGODONES, MEXICO
We drove across the border. Lunch was a savory feast of red rice, beans, and fajita steak with gooey cheese. We also obliged when it was time for some authentic tequila-laden margaritas. We took a much needed walk through all of the souvenir shops, as we noted all of the pharmacies offering cheap drugs (Viagra seemed to be a 5 dollar favorite) and doctor's offices offering cheap plastic surgery. Seemed like a bad combo to us!

Our afternoon included more souvenir shopping and a tasty churro (doughy Mexican treat!) followed by the most refreshing coconut water this side of the border.
