Day 57: Los Algodones, Mexico

Posted: May 7, 2014 in 2014 April - Meixco

Slept like a log last night – 10 hours uninterrupted! Legs, inparticular my knees, are sore today.

After yesterday I decided to take a day off and visit another Mexican border town to do some sightseeing – Los Algodones. Driving a brand new Big Chevrolet Truck which is slightly nerve racking, seeing as I’ve not used to driving – period (my last vehicle was a 50 cc scooter!)


Lunch at Golden Corral $8.49 (less than £6 in real money)

Salad starter:


Chinese main:


Burger and chips:


Gammon and Brussels:


Trio of chocolate brownie, mousses and fudge:


Melon and tangerine:


Wanted 8 plates but alas my stomach said no. Still had my money’s worth though I’d say. Fed for the whole day at a reasonable price I’d say!?

Over the border is significantly more relaxed than Juarez… More tourist friendly and laid back.



Expenditure $22.94
