I don't mean to deliberately bash El Paso but I missed walking barefoot in green grass not on hot sidewalks or sand.

I lived in El Paso in 1980 to 1991 and again about 10 years later. I worked for GTE Sylvania for minimum wage. It took me about 6 months to get this job. I eventually was able to get to Houston. I remember quitting GTE and walking home and telling my wife that I quit my job and that we were getting the h**l out of that city.

I never saw an expression of such joy on her face. I later moved there again and could not find a job.

The job market there sucked. I had several friends there. There was not much to do out there. The last time I was there they had some concert event at a man made lake out in the middle of the desert. There were no trees just gusty wind and grainy sand.

I went into Cuidad Juarez one time and that was enough for me. Downtown El Paso near the 5 Points was dirty and nasty. I never went in that district again either. I had hard distinguishing if I was in America or Mexico.

I was able to determine that by seeing the American flag and that El Paso was cleaner. I remember driving down I 10 and seeing the Colonias and felt for the people of Mexico.
