The city of El Paso, TX

El Paso is situated at the farest out corner of West Texas and stands on the Rio Grande river directly at the Mexican border. At the other side of the river is Ciudad Juarez, a populous Mexican city. Both combined form the international metropolitan area referred to El Paso-Juarez-Las Cruces with over 2.5 million people which constitutes the largest binational area.

In some parts of the city are beautiful and huge state homes overlooking the city, in other parts you feel the proximity to Mexico. Mexican food is the dominant eatery. And Border Control is everywhere. Still, it is a very interesting and diverse city to visit.

  1. Good pics again. I’ve been to El Paso once in August; it was hot & humid, but with some good Tex Mex restaurants.
