Fun time into Mexico for a few hours!

Where are we today ?
           Now once again just another awesome day,sunshine and almost hot, well at least it is sunny and warm hi 60's lower 70's, yep we can deal with that!
          At 9 am we have the fresh made cinnamon buns, right out of the oven at 9am. Can't go anywhere until we share one of these.
         Us three guys headed up there at 9am get the hot buns for the women we love. Gotta keep them happy ya know ( Happy wife happy life!)
my half of a hot cinnamon bun
         Now cinnamon buns done we can head out in John and Barbs SUV to Mexico, 5 seat belts six people,hmm. Suzie sit on my lap. But we only have about 2 miles to go and it is $6.00 per car to park.
         Not a problem all is good and we had a pretty decent day for weather. high 60's f and overcast so great for wandering about.
         Of course as soon as we cross into Mexico all the vendors jump right at you, really need to know how to say NO to these people. but is fun and annoying all at the same time.
Cheap drugs!
Viagra  "almost fee"! 
      We just wandered about enjoying the atmosphere, and looking at fun things so see. There is some great deals to be had if you barter with these guys. Like $30.00 nope, barter back and forth and end up buying it for $10.00, just need to know what is a deal.
good deals on eyeglasses
hmm, you can buy anything here
bicycle with a gas engine
relaxing in the square
need a haircut? good deal.
          We found the Taco guy again, fish taco $1.50, shrimp taco $1.75 Suzie and I had one of each. tasty and hit the spot!
Fresh made while we wait
tasty lunch
       Then after a bite for lunch time to hit the huge square for some lively entertainment and an adult beverage. Monster margaritas (5 bucks) and ice cold Corona only 2 bucks. Listen to the music, chat and relax for a while after a fun morning here.
nice child's bicycle 
Security here is good
        Enough fun here in Mexico for today time to head back home and relax with our books for a while. Until time to enjoy a social hour with our friends to review the fun day we had.
Suzie got her doggie fix with Hank and Piper
          But then we have to whip up supper. Tonight a bacon wrapped fillet, baked potato, grilled zucchini and some mushrooms and onions in foil to top it off. Really hit the spot.
love our Weber Q 100
so tasty
        That was our fun day, hope you had one too.
        Thanks for stopping in again for a visit.

  7. It's funny that you think low 70's is almost hot, while Floridians think that's cold. : )

    I never thought fish tacos sounded good, but I tried one a while back and were surprised how good they were.

    1. If the sun is shinning and and temps above 60f it is wonderful. The vendors said we must be Canadian because of our uniforms=shorts.
      The fish and shrimp tacos are quite tasty.

  8. You did a great job capturing the "flavor" of a border town.... they have a life all of their own! I love every one of them. And fish tacos! WhoooHoooo... my favorite!

      Yes tasty fish tacos just hit the spot for a nice light lunch.

  10. When we are in Mission, we love going to Mexico. We have found the people really nice.

    Totally agree with...to bargain or not to bargain. We have gotten some great deals. We also have passed up some not-so-good deals.

  11. Every time I think I just might venture into Mexico I see a blogger post a bunch of great pics of a small border town with all the hustle and bustle and it makes me rethink my thoughts of visiting. Thanks for the tour, George, but I think I'll just look for a cinnamon bun and stay on this side of the border.

    1. We always enjoy the trip over there, much more fun than and American city.
      Not as much fun as real Mexican small towns thou, love them.

  12. Looked like another great day, did you pick up a new hat from the hat vendor? Will you guys be making a trip into Phoenix anytime soon?

    1. No more hats, I have enough already. We could be in the Phoenix area near the end of February, not quite sure yet, would like to meet up with guys if you are available.

    2. That would be great. Just let us know when you are in town and we will get together. Looking forward to it!

    3. Yes it would be, thats a long way away yet though, will see if we can do it.

    1. Lots of fun, no real Mexico but still fun.

  15. You sure are making us miss Mexico with this post. Up in the earlier comments you mentioned that Mexico is so much more fun than any American city and I think you are right on there. It's hard to believe that as soon as you cross the border you are in a totally different atmosphere, yet the two towns are so close. And yep, you are right the border town isn't the same as the real Mexican towns but it sure is the next best thing.
