Presidio, Texas & Ojinaga, Mexico

March 29th: Arrive at beautiful Ft. Stockton, Texas at 6AM after a Greyhound all nighter from Austin. A five hour layover before departure to Presidio gave me time to wander the streets and try to find the answer to the enduring question, "Why would anyone live in a place like this?" I failed miserably, but had some good conversations and lots of observations.

Off to Presidio, and then across the international border in the mid-afternoon. Dragged my duffel on the streets of Ojinaga, got cell phone service, and decided to stay the night so that I could get to Creel at a proper hour.
