We have not been back over the border since my last post. So I wanted to finish yesterday’s tale.
As I said we took a taxi over, got some teeth work done and walked to find something to eat. On the way we only met friendly folk. And only one person who seemed to be ‘hustling’ for a handout. Quite different from our experience in Progresso, although even there, they weren’t persistent. I have been in many countries, mostly ports of call of the USN, I have given my share of money to those less fortunate than I, I mean, who can turn down a cute Street Urchin.
All the side streets are very narrow. I loved this guys outfit below! Martha’s restaurante is in the back ground.
I could not get a good picture of these cowboy boots. If anyone can explain them, I am ready to listen. Look close and you will see the toes extend about 8”
We did a little window shopping, walked in the plaza and always enjoy the colorful displays. Dresses of all kinds…
Boots above a good price 200 pesos = $15.50
I surprised these guys or they surprised me, working on the display we all laughed.
Above is the Border notification and a shot of the River.
This is the Rio Grande it is very clear water and much larger than is is in The Big Bend Area West of here. BUT here the water is coming from Lake Amistad, where the River is dammed.
Looking back, as we walked back to the taxi stand where we left our car. You see the Gold on White sign of Mexico.
We do plan to drive over the next time we go. I don’t see a problem here. This is a pleasant little town. Well not so little, Acuna is much larger than Del Rio.
I must say here, Please forgive my lack of visits via comments, we are operating on 2G here and it actually took 25 minutes to post last nights blog entry. They are slow loading, but I am getting to read them.
Most of the time a click send you into never never land.
Thanks for coming this way. We will be here until after the 4th, then head towards Albuquerque.
For some reason, patience is tough regarding the net, have you notice that? LOL
