I just got back from visiting family in Mexico. It was a good time. There are two cities in these photos: Juarez (first 10), & and Chihuahua. Two desert pictures distinguish the two.
La Violencia was a major blow to the tourist industry in Juarez. Many clubs and bars went out of business.
Pancho Villa is a national hero from the Mexican Revolution. In the State of Chihuahua, where he is from, and in which Juarez is in, he's virtually a god.
On the way to the state Capital- Chihuahua, you'll see the Samalayuca Dune Fields. Here they filmed portions of the 80's movie, "Dune." I took these photos at a rest area. The area where it looks the coolest was closed off from where I was.
Never been to Chihuahua, but I've always loved Juarez. Granted I knew it when it was less dangerous. Cool pics.
"A single round-trip flight between Chicago and Frankfurt, Germany burns about 3.5 tons of carbon dioxide--that's about what a medium-sized car in the United States burns for an entire year."
