Awhile back I mentioned my upcoming trip to Marfa, Texas, and now it's finally here! I just landed in El Paso this afternoon and have spent the day wandering around the city (and the mountains...but more on that later). While there's not a whole lot going on here (sorry El Paso), the food is delicious (way better than the brand of products that uses the city's name) and the vintage signage is everywhere. Below are just a couple of the things was able to stop and snap a photo of.
This last one is a mural behind a record store/head shop. I bought a Captain Beefheart record and the man who sold it to me was psyched. He actually stopped midsentence to say "You know who this is??". Apparently he'd seen him play four times.
