In our stage in Dallas, during the coast to coast travel in the United States, we had the opportunity to recall one of the most popular television series of the 70-80s, Dallas.

Previously, we traveled by car a population called Parker, which allowed us to know better the more residential and rural world of Texas. We pass with the car through various urbanizations and residential areas, some of very high economic level.

It must be recognized that the North American custom that numerous huge, well-maintained houses follow one another without separation fences, has a much more attractive visual impact than the usual image in Spain of villas all separated by high fences.

From what it seems, everyone knows where their land ends, and must be responsible enough to keep it in good condition, with the grass well cut. Otherwise, it would be considered a bad neighbor when devaluing the property.

Sourthfork Ranch We locate it through the Internet. This mansion became famous for the aforementioned TV series that dealt with the vicissitudes of the Ewing family (JR, Pat, Sue Ellen, Bobby, Jack, Elly, ...), who lived in this ranch, which, after several laps on the roads in the area, we were able to locate and visit, after paying the relevant entrance fee.

They inform us that in the TV series Dallas only the outside of Southfork ranch, because the interiors were always recorded in film studios in California. Despite this, the ranch inside is decorated with photos and pictures as if it really Ewing family I would have lived there.

I guess it's a good business for ranch owners, thanks to tourist visits and their store souvenirs. I imagine that the protagonists of the series and the producers also share part of the cake for lending their image.

However, and regardless of Southfork ranch will be partially used for the TV series, it is about a real ranch, of the real ones, in which there lived a family well positioned economically, as can be seen by its dimensions, decoration and quality of furniture.

From there, returning to the hotel, we turn off to get lost through the residential areas around Dallas.

We have really seen beautiful, large and spacious houses, in a very idyllic and well-kept environment, with built-in lake / river, and as always, in the American style, which still gives greater leverage to these residential areas.

Already in the motel, it was a great occasion to see the movie JFK, from Oliver Stone, which analyzes in almost exhaustive detail everything that surrounds JFK and his murder.

He gained in intensity and emotion having been able to be physically in the places where the historic events of Dallas took place.
