Thus it was that I donned a headscarf (not required of us non-Muslim women visitors, but a respectful thing to do) and headed over to "meet my neighbors." Hospitality ruled...we felt most welcome and forged a nice initial alliance between Border Peace Presence and the Islamic community. I reflected on how this experience was likely the last one I ever anticipated as I imagined what life in El Paso might entail. If our Border Exploration is a mosaic of many pieces, Sunday evening at the mosque will be a particularly treasured tile in that mosaic.
