I saw these two words everywhere in the Spanish speaking parts of Laredo (both sides). There is another Mexican cutie in the photo, but all you see is her back.
Mayoreo and Menudeo. At first, I thought Mayoreo was a nice play on words to describe Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans, but the fact that these words were painted on nearly every storefront made me believe that perhaps it means Wholesale and Retail or some other phrase that is significant to cross-border shoppers.
Anyone care to translate this for me?
I love this photo, taken in front of a Mexican pharmacy. Lots of medicines that require a prescription in the US are sold OTC in Mexico. Here, Milady poses with a placard outside a main-street pharmacy.
You'll notice that the first three listed are Levitra, Viagra, Cialis. Numerous other brand-name medications are on the card too. Prescription medications are easy to find in old Mexico as OTC medications. Narcotics are controlled and require a physician, but other meds are sold across the counter.
