El Paso: My New Digs


My El Paso apartment - in the back, unseen. El Paso, Texas. August 2016.



Back here I visited house hunting present and past.

I present you today with photos of my new digs in Sunset Heights. It came furnished, which has its pros and cons.

My kitchen. It overlooks the rooftop terrace. Which overlooks the landlords' garden.

My bedroom, office, and living room.

Look, a real bed. The first since I left Alamogordo. Not that I'm complaining about my chic red friend from Alamogordo and Louisiana:

My chic red bed.



In my "living room," see that folding table in the lower left-hand corner? I bought that from my friend "Suzanne" (who I visited in D.C. last year) at her moving sale, years ago, for one dollar, and it's traveled with me in the US ever since. Perfect height, perfect length and width, so light and yet sturdy, and it fits snug as a sweet puppy in the ledge beneath my car's rear window. It is my office.

My rear view from the rooftop terrace that I access from what used to be the kitchen back in the day, but which is now the bathroom. You can see UTEP in between a neighbor's roof and a mountain.

Here's a slip of a Juarez view - in the far background - from the side of my apartment, also on the rooftop terrace.

An evening view from the terrace. Most afternoons and evenings, the clouds congregate over by the mountain, unseen in this photo, but behind the foliage that's on the upper right quadrant of the picture.

The wind - the opinionated, bossy, busybody El Paso wind - likes to swoosh around the exterior corners of my apartment and complain and sing at I don't know what.
