Trip to Mexico Photos

We went to a small town in Mexico, Nueva Rosita, last Wednesday to the dentist. I thought you might enjoy some of the photos I took. It was cloudy going down especially and I didn't even realize there were mountains in the distance. It is a pretty bleak area and there are many, many windmills (papalotes).

Border entry at Piedras Negras.



Church near the money exchange.



The checkpoint where you get your car permit and tourist cards.



The clouds lifted for a while on the way down.



The hotel patio.



One of the ranches on the way back.



One of the many windmills.



Another windmill and corrals.



A piñata shop and candy shop in Piedras Negras.

Crossing the Rio Grande back into Texas.
