I have mixed feeling about Jesuits but am grateful for the beauty they created here at this little place in a 10,000 square mile desert. Among the hundreds of date palms planted by the Jesuits centuries ago lies the little town with nothing much more to offer than a grocery store and a gas station, which we hear 'sometimes' has gas. We carry two large jerry-cans, one with water and one with gas and it's our lucky day, there is gas to be bought.
We came prepared with some food too, but the empanadas look tempting.
