We’re on our way back from looking at homes. Closer to base and in our price range. And it’s better. It really is. It’s not somewhere like Dallas or Denver (which I sorely miss) but it’s nothing like our hotel in downtown El Paso.
Sam reminded me we are 6 miles from the border. And in a big city. Of course it’s going to be dirty and huge – most cities are.
I heard on the news the heat here is unusual even for El Paso in June. So there we go.
And we’ve found a few fun places to eat. Our hotel has a swimming pool.
I have my husband and daughter with me. 🙂 As cranky and tired and culture shocked as they both are. We will be ok.
And? Bella found a dried lizard outside today that had eye sockets but no eyes and was flattened into a kind of very dry raisin.
So there is that. If nothing else, we have sun-dried raisin lizards with no eye balls.
