Virtual El Paso: Rosas Cantina
EL PASO THROUGH THE EYE OF A CAMERA LENS: Rosa’s Cantina — the legendary dive bar on Doniphan, and the inspiration for one of the most famous Country-Western songs ever recorded
Before Juarez’s infamous violence started making global headlines, El Paso was mostly known as the place where Marty Robbins “fell in love with a Mexican girl,” and Rosa’s Cantina as the watering hole where “music would play and Faleena would whirl.” So next time your near the racetrack, drop in and put a couple of quarters in the jukebox. You know which song to play.
NOTE: Send me your picture of El Paso through the eye of your camera lens and I just might feature it in a future posting. Email the pic along with your name and a brief description of the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
