More accidental (and purposeless) images from the past 24 hours of my border sojourn.
We were stuck behind these two motorcycle miscreants for a good 20 minutes (wouldn't think of passing 'em). Thankfully an arbitrary Border Patrol stop provided the much-anticipated opportunity to bid them, "farewell" in the rear-view mirror.
Upon stopping, the Border Patrol agent leaned into our window and engaged us in the following succinct, albeit meaningful, convo:
BP: "Both of you U.S. citizens?"
us: "Yes, sir."
BP: "Have a good day."
This very rustic and obviously homemade sign was posted at the aforementioned BP exit. Made me nod my head in agreement:
On a different note ... let me just say Texas A&M International University in Laredo is a far-cry from my sacred stomping ground of Texas A&M University in College Station. But, hey, I can now say I've been, right?
And saving today's best for last ... the photographic coup de grace, if you will. I [unfortunately] captured the following image as I was leaving the UT-Pan American campus in Edinburg. I mean, seriously. SERIOUSLY? (yep--that's a real baby)?
Words escape me.
Hot time, summer in the city. And until God knows what ... adiós.
