In honor of the America issue, I embark on a road trip that is written down in my bucket list since i put it there 5 years ago……MARFA West Texas. Founded in the early 1880’s…

Lots of old cars around marfa, thunderbirds n’ such… one old pontiac in which we found open in the back where i found a polaroid of the actual back of the car with someone in it. either this was some sort of art project like how long does it take till someone finds this and keeps it….. or i was just lucky…

Inside an abandoned bus – could it be there for a reason, installation? or maybe we were actually trespassing?

random closed restaurant seemed like is served mexican food (as being right by the border to mexico), and had a drive through looking design… maybe it was popular at one point back in the day.

MYSTERY LIGHTS, the speculation still thrives on today that in one area you could see from Highway 67, ghosts from the war, ufos, lights trying to tell us something in the 10-20 days out of the year they appear in basketball size looking spheres sometimes in colors- and then people think its a mirage or car lights at nigh or campfires….. we still don’t know….

 the population increased during World War II, where we also got to explore BUILDING 98, where one lady resides to keep up after it being a POW -prisoners of war- camp during the war. it was this grand house and each room had a story. prisoners held there weren’t held as prisoners really, they painted the entire house of murals of where they were from and countrysides, where they could use their creative side and imaginations …. it was astonishing because we did not know what we were actually walking into…. we were referred by a friend of hers at hotel paisano.  So that was pretty intense. i don’t want to give you a history lesson but its a part of the road trip. look into it its very interesting what marfa had been used to do during WWII.
