May 27 28 El Paso

Bret and I spent most of two days just hanging out. He had his hip replaced for the second time the Friday before I arrived.

His parents were staying with him and he and they were a little stir crazy.

Bret commented when they picked me up that he’d never picked up any friend at a train station… in the US.

We went to Jaxon’s brew pub several times, Brew sports pub (which doesn’t brew), the Sunset Brewery (which is a pizzeria, not a brewery), and King’s X (which had only recently reopened).

They dropped me again at the train station on Thusday evening. The train had arrived a little early, but left a little late. I was soon headed west again.
