Marfa for a night...

Marfa was definitely on the list for this trip. We figured we'd do it on the drive home…but we were running way late heading to BB from Devils River, so Marfa happened the 2nd night. We thought it'd be awesome to stay in the teepee's at El Cosmic~ but they were fully booked…on a tuesday. go figure. 
But! that lead us to randomly booking the "James Dean" room at the Paisano Hotel…from the road.  IT REALLY WORKED OUT! We arrived around 8, had dinner + drinks next door, and then hung out in the room.  >>> apparently james dean stayed there while filming his last movie <<< The front desk people kept asking if he "visited" us…but he did not.

The next day we woke early and explored the hotel a bit, took pictures, and checked out the gift shops. {that dang cold front blew in over night…a  day early…awesome sauce} Some locals recommended Marfa Burrito for breakfast~ and we were all in!! The place is pretty tiny but the burritos are HUGE. I guess that's what a burrito is though, a really big taco. We were expecting a taco for some reason {cuz we are addicts} and we ordered 4. It was pretty funny…freaking delicious…and convenient, bc lunch was covered too! We wanted to check out the Prada Store, and other rad spots…but the drive to Big Bend was going to be longer than we expected, of course, so we hit the road…jack. 

While things didn't go exactly as planned, this was probably my favorite "happy accident" of the trip. There were a few hiccups, and i'm sure i could have had a better attitude with these bumps in the road…but i suppose that's part of the fun! So looking back i'm really glad it happened this way, and would love to go back soon.
