Looks like I won't be getting away from the Ft Worth area this year, which sucks because I hate Ft Worth (it's redeeming feature is that it isn't Dallas). Anyway, I decided to dig through my past and relieve one of the best trips I ever took, which was to Big Bend. It was my senior year in high school, and I went with my mom, my sis, Gabs, and her friend who I'll call Chevy. My dad wasn't able to make it, but we had so much fun we went again two years later and took him with us.

One of the more interesting things that happened there was witnessing an illegal border crossing. Seriously! We had gone down to the Rio Grande and we saw a woman and her child riding a donkey. They got off the donkey and crossed the river, leaving the donkey there. Chevy was obsessed with the donkey, and I just wanted to go into Mexico to say I've gone to Mexico (at that time, I've never been outside the US), so Chevy and I crossed the Rio Grande and petted the donkey. And to this day, that is the extent of my travels in Mexico (and I'm scared to go there now, cuz, y'know, cartels). On another note, the extent of my travels in Canada equate to going over the border to see Niagara Falls from the Canadian side when I was at a conference in New York. So I've been both north and south of the border, but not for even over an hour.

people don't see these anymore. )
