Palomas, Mexico, is a small, friendly and uncrowded border town. And we love visiting.
We parked our car in a lot in New Mexico. Walking across the international bridge into Palomas, Mexico, we notice and remember all the dental buildings.
Medical tourism, especially dental work, is very available in Palomas. Many of the dentists offer procedures at a much more reasonable price than we can find in the United States. However, we did not come for dental or any other medical reasons. We just came for fun, shopping and eating. Walking into Palomas, we admired the detail work on this statue.
Because this is a small town, and not a big tourist destination, there are very few street venders. We usually see someone selling sunglasses and maybe a small food cart. But the large selections of silver jewelry and other souvenirs often sold by venders, are usually absent in Palomas. The gazebo in a park caught our attention, also.
The cathedral is very prominent and nice.
We love these old cathedrals. Walking down the street, we love the bright colors worn by many of the females.
These dresses are really beautiful. On the main street, we appreciated the statue of the man playing the accordion.
In another plaza we spotted this statue of a man and his guitar.
The same plaza had beautiful carved wooden doors.
We love the craftsmanship of so many things in Mexico. Further into town, we discovered this school for young children.
Perhaps a preschool?
But children all over the world love Winnie the Pooh. And so do the Colorado Traveling Ducks. We enjoy wandering around Palomas. We browse and make purchases in a couple grocery stores. Always something new. This time we found large chunks of a pumpkin candy. And we always get small bottles of fresh vanilla. Often there are new hair products that we have not seen in stores at home. And, of course, in Palomas, we always visit The Pink Store. And have lunch or an early dinner at the restaurant in The Pink Store. Next time, we will show you some of The Pink Store.
