Gorgeous weather! Clear, blue sky and no pollution! El Paso looked inviting and alluring. But now that we are on schedule to return to California before Sunday, I was satisfied with appreciating the passing scenery including the University of Texas El Paso architecture.
Back to Las Cruces, New Mexico. Following a recommendation of the New Mexico tourism information volunteer, we stopped at the Historic Town of Mesilla. Andele Restaurant has no curb appeal. The building actually looks like a budget motel. The spacious parking lot was getting full and it was only 30 minutes to noon.
J.J. ordered their specialty of mixed plate but I chose a simple burrito filled with beef and potato stew which was excellent.
Whenever we dine in a restaurant, I always request for a very hot cup of water with wedges of lemon. Sometime I get a plateful of lemon and on other occasions, just a thin slice.
Our server, Raul was very kind and attentive and offered me a second cup of hot water and more lemon without my asking for them. He was also curious and interested in our travels. He wants to travel. We gave him a few ideas on how to travel and get paid. One example is working for a cruise ship.
J.J. and I wished him well in pursuit of his dreams and happiness.
Honu got a good car wash and cleaning to get rid of the accumulated dirt and remains of bugs and insects.
Lordsburg KOA is still operating as a KOA franchise. Powerful hot shower is always welcome. The temperature is expected to go down to 37.
Here is an interesting contraption devised by a tent camper.
