back to Sierra Vista
On our free day in Sierra Vista (which was, yes, now two weeks ago... sorry- we are such slackers!), our host family, Alma & Pablo Xibille, took us to Bisbee, which is about 20 minutes from Sierra Vista, and spitting distance from the Mexican border. Bisbee is an old copper mining town -- check out the open mine pit! The mine has been closed for about 50 years, so the community is now, as my host mom says, a "hippie" community full of local artists and artisans.
