We went to a Mexican restaurant for supper and ate ‘authentic’ Mexican food which was just great. After supper we visited one of Bertha’s nieces and her children.
We drove back across the border, but it is much harder to get into the States than leaving and the lines of cars were very long at the border. Before getting to the US border agents there were people selling just about everything under the sun, and begging for money.
We drove home and to Star at Wal-Mart.
We spent the day in Yuma, AZ one hour away. We drove through another area of sand dunes and the RVs again were parked among the dunes. We saw many people sand duning using dune buggies and bikes . We drove through the desert and then in the middle of nowhere a casino pops up, run by the local Indian tribe. It seems that every tribe runs a casino. As we approached Yuma the landscape changed again, it became green and lush. The land is well irrigated from the Colorado River and the farmers grow dates and citrus in this area. In Yuma we went to three different flea markets. These markets really cater to RVers with almost every camping accessory you could possibly need for sale.
Between Yuma and El Centro there are geothermal energy plants and hot spas
On the way home we stopped at Sizzlers for supper, boy what a place to eat. You order your meal at the counter and before you receive your meal you basically overindulge at the salad bar which has every type of food, enough to make a meal all its self. We ate so much that the four of us ended up taking our entrees home to have the next day for supper.
We set up John’s new TV for him then back to Star
