Title: A visit to the left side.
Post by: Drewtastic on December 17, 2005, 10:03:30 PM
I was lucky enough to meet The King of the Gypsies while on a trip this last fall. Caught this snapshot during a conversation we had while gazing upon the Chisos after a rainstorm.  

Later that day he and I would find ourselves on stage at the Starlight Theater in front of a crowd of many.  He would later go on to become the elected Mayor of Terlingua.  As for me, things would never be the same.  Enjoy.

The left side of what? Sanity?  I still think that's the tripiest picture I"ve seen....

Perhaps the thin air of the Chisos affected them?

I especially like the fancy looking watch that the king of gypsies has on his wrist.

I could swear that was Michael Moore on the right hand side of the picture - you sure he wasn't doing a documentary on Big Bend?

You know, documenting how the 9/11 terrorists entered the country through the Big Bend region @ Santa Elana.  Isn't that why it is now illegal to cross from The Republic of Texas into Mexcio and back?  Actually, I think it's legal to cross into Mexico w/o going through an official check point Charlie, (don't know about Mexican laws), but it's the coming back that's illegal.  Of course, it's always been illegal, just never enforced - wink wink.
Title: cool picture
