Elpaso vintage
El Paso is a city in far-western Texas, located on the Rio Grande across the border from Juarez, Mexico. The two cities, despite being in different countries, are integrated in many ways, and form a large, shared metropolitan area. The city is the largest bi-national and bilingual workforce in the Western Hemisphere. It is consistently ranked the safest large American city. It is also home to the largest military training camp in the country.

It was founded as a Spanish mission in 1659, which grew to become both the city of El Paso and Juarez.

Today, El Paso is known for its blend of culture, bilingualism, relationship with Mexico, downtown area, low crime rate, military prescence, and quality of life.
