It turned out that most of my friends were not in town that weekend (hey barko1 ), so I used the time to see some family and visit Mesilla.

Mesilla used to be the county seat of Arizona and New Mexico territories. It has an old historic center that has been going to waste for years. It has the potential to be a really interesting attraction for tourists ($$$) if they were a little more flexible, sort of like a nice Mexican town in the US...

Mesilla's plaza:

This used to be the courthouse where they tried Billy the Kid:

I love this section of Hwy 28 where it goes through the pecan farms:

And it was time to finally get south of the border.
