Doctor Simi

Everywhere you go in Mexico, there will be a Doctor Simi dancing wildly in front of a Farmácias Similares outlet. They’re a huge chain of drugstores that provide medical services, and sell generic versions of most drugs. In Nuevo León a few years ago, I had some sort of insect bite on my foot that threatened to ruin my trip. A visit with a nice doctor, and a prescription from the drug store cost me slightly over $10, and the trip lasted another 3 weeks.

I’m always happy to see the dancing doctor.
