The very first person we met in El Paso asked us what we were there to see besides dirt. When we met Daniel in the Segundo Barrio he understood why we were there - there’s a whole lot more to El Paso than dirt. Daniel’s family has called both El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico home for as long as he can remember. He’s been around for major changes in the area - from the water park that closed when he was a teen (he’s still upset about this) to the proposed new stadium downtown (which would involve tearing down historic buildings and neighborhoods).
