From Silver City, New Mexico The Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Ensemble drove into El Paso, Texas to perform at the Abraham Chavez Theater on October 16, 2011.  Here are some images of our time there.

Detour to our nearest Target for a few mid-tour items.

The Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Ensemble began their October tour in Pampa, Texas, performing in the M.K. Brown Civic Auditorium.  Though it begins to cool off in Phoenix, Arizona, I found myself quite cold throughout our travels.  Here are some images of our time!
