At 7.00pm arrived at a restaurant in "Dry" county Fort Davis. I ordered a beer but was told that I needed to join the golf club to consume alcohol. So I Joined - I needed a beer and being a member of a golf club again was a somewhat appealing incentive. And to top it all the meal (salad and rib eye) was excellent.
05/04/07 - Fort Davis to Deming - New Mexico (323 miles) - Ranch country, Interstate long & lonely roads and city traffic all in the space of 4 hours
I have just driven through El Paso (which reminded me of Lorca and Murcia City, in Southern Spain) Lorca - a city in a rift valley, Murcia - an unavoidable drive through the city. Now, if you haven't been to Lorca, Murcia and El Paso, what I've just said will mean bugger all ! Let's just say, that the climate, the architecture, the landscape and terracotta colours, are the same in this area of Texas as they are in the Murcia region of Spain, accept a little bigger. (At least Vince will understand this, right Vince?)
NB: My total mileage is now 5090, which was my pre-departure plan for the whole trip and I've still got 10 weeks to go!
