Driving from San Antonio to El Paso, Texas was 10 hours of dusty, empty road. We couldn’t even keep the dust out of the car. There were no major towns along the way – just small communities of run down trailers, We stopped at a rest stop to use the bathroom and the toilet seats were covered in an inch of dust. By the time we checked into our hotel in El Paso, we were too exhausted and congested to even think about venturing out of the hotel. We ordered room service, watched TV, and slept – a lot.
