Came out to El Paso to meet an internet connection (female, of course) but it didn't work out. I couldn't expect her to stay home waiting for my email, and free access points are rare in this town. It was a long walk from the Ciudad Juarez bus terminal (Central Camionera) to the Olive Garden where she wanted to meet, and it's going to be a long, cold night unless I find a 24-hour Kinko's and/or a Denny's. Holed up now in the Starbuck's charging my laptop and Clié batteries. If the buses run tomorrow I might be able to avoid walking as much as I did today, somewhere between 20 and 25 miles I'm guessing.
