"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Palomas, MX

And, the Pink Store.

Just a couple of miles South of Columbus, New Mexico is Palomas, Mexico.  A very small, rural village right on the border.  About the only thing Palomas has going for itself is the Pink Store.  I was so enamored, I forgot to take a picture of the exterior, so this is one a friend posted on Facebook.


It’s filled with lots of stuff.  All of it colorful.

Need a chicken?

Or, maybe a platter to serve one on.

More stuff.

We had a wonderful early supper in the cantina/restaurant.

A number 10.

But the ticket was a bit disturbing.

All those Roca’s add up.  Thankfully, those were Peso’s rather than dollars.

After making a couple of other purchases, we slipped back across the border.  Thankfully, Wanda hadn’t enjoyed as many Roca’s as me, and returned us safely to the campground in Columbus…..jc


  1. Mmmmm ... that #10 looks delish!
