Camino Real Hotel – El Paso, Texas

This building probably doesn’t have any meaning to anyone else but it does for me. I was in the 5th grade when I first moved to El Paso, Texas. (I was not happy about the move btw.) Everyday my Dad and I had to make a drive across town to the school we were both at. I remember sitting in the car and driving through downtown El Paso and seeing this very building here. It’s one of the tallest buildings in our downtown and it stuck out like a sore thumb. It’s a very, very old building but it has a lot of history. Now I’ve actually only been inside this building once…it’s beautiful inside and they’re actually remodeling it right now. Anyways, this building has a HUGE impact on me and the way I view/remember the move to El Paso. Now whenever I think of El Paso, I think of the tall Camino Real Hotel and all it’s beauty. Now the people working there or anyone who built don’t even know the impact this building has had on me but I will never forget it. The experience I can think back to now about El Paso and the many buildings will always be the Camino Real Hotel and the many, many times I stared at that building as I flew by on the highway. Buildings/structures can have huge influences/impacts on our lives and this one right here has an impact on mine.
