See the New Makeover of the Former Red X (La Equis) in Juarez
There is nothing wrong at all with wanting to make a simple change to something we already got comfortable with. Every time I see the big bright red X I always remember my old kickball league days. Not only that, I associated the red X with a personal memory of visiting Ciudad Juarez just to see the red X. Well, we can all say goodbye to what once was a huge red x but now transforming to a white giant X this time around. As you will see the embedded photo from El Paso Upcoming's Instagram a transformation in the middle of its process. There are children that are growing up and won't remember how the X originally started. There will be stories being told about this particular beautiful type of architecture. One thing for sure, once this pandemic settles down and times are safer I plan on visiting the X again.

The famous X (La Equis) in the border was painted white for the past week. The paint is said to be an epoxi paint coating to protect from corrosion and paint decay. Some say the 197-foot-tall structure will be visited by its original sculptor Enrique Carbajal, "Sebastián" and make some tweaks while others say it will get repainted red. It is said that the total costs are of $11 million pesos and will finish in three months. #juarez #ciudadjuarez #elpaso #elpasotexas #elpasotx #915 #elpasotx915 #eptx915 #eptx #elpasoupcoming #elpasostrong #lax #laequix
What was the red X was nice to see on the drives I have taken on the border highway in the evening. I know distractions can be considered a bad thing while you're driving on the road. But a quick glance can be amazing as you're driving along the border highway. Since the X (La Equis) has been around and the color red for quite some time now, it is time for a change. The new white painted coat will help protect from paint decay and corrosion. I am excited to take a cruise on the border highway just to see how it looks at night with a different shade.
