The road to Petrolina...

Yes, my friend that is a donkey hanging out on the side of the road. They are everywhere, I tell you!
Get your hmmm melons, here??
Horse and cart outside of the main fruit market. We passed quite a few along the way to the farms.
This was the old train depot, built in the 1800s.
The main bridge in town.. We haven't seen a train on the center tracks yet, and personally I hope we never do as it will be a tight squeeze! They have been upgrading the bridge for the last 10 years. All the work is done by hand.

Petrolina Palace, our home for the next three days. I will take pictures of the inside tonight. Let's just say it is a bit creepy!
Oh, and these are the local horses and donkeys that chill in the lot next to our hotel.
