El Paso has been good to us. We’ve made great friends and we’re comfortable in our home. The weather is usually nice (if you like sunshine) and my husband enjoys his work.
But I really miss the GREEN. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where everything is green, all of the time.
Everything here is red and brown. Red rocks in the front yard, tan colored houses, and not a real tree in sight. Don’t even get me started on the lack of water.
Making a trip to Kansas in spring was such a breath of fresh air. Everything was green and it was wonderful.
The only complaint I have is that when we drove back into El Paso after our vacation, I noticed the lack of green even more.
