Del Rio, TX and Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila

When I started this trip, I didn't know how far I would make it, but my minimum goal was Del Rio. By the time I made it there, I was sure I'd go further, but it still felt like a big milestone.

Crossing the border

The tourist strip in Acuña. I'm told Ma Crosby's used to be the place to be.

Acuña had plenty of life (which I was too shy to photograph). But with Americans scared of crossing the border no matter how safe the town, the tourist strip was pretty dead.
