ANDRADE, CA, U.S.-March 19: An American couple walk across the border to visit the Mexican town of Algodones March 19, 2005. The once dusty little town with one dentist in the 1960s has become a mecca for retired Americans in search of less expensive medical services and prescription drugs inspite of warnings from the Food and Drug Administration and American pharmaceutical companies that drugs sold abroad may not be as safe as those purchased in the U.S. © Radhika Chalasani
