**update** Annotations are not working on this video, so if you can't spot where I see the apparition, keep an eye on the lower right of the video @ 0:13 and 1:46 , upper middle @ 1:03 and 2:00 (same time you hear what sounds like a cough. Or was it the ghost appearing?)

This video was taken in historic downtown Rio Grande City, Texas at the La Borde House hotel. As part of a ghost tour, we were taken into what is known as "The Texian" room in the hotel. My camera was on because I was hoping to use it to record some EVP, which was kind of foolish considering the number of people in the room and all the chatter, although that should explain to you why most of this video is dark.

However, in doing so, I capture what appears to be the face of a female apparition at the same moment someone's camera flash goes off. I am unsure if what I captured could have been one of the other guests, but we were so crowded in that room, standing almost shoulder to shoulder, that I have to ask: Where are the faces of the others then? If you can identify this person as one of the guests that was there with us that night, please let me know.

One of my reasons for believing that this might actually be an apparition is because this was the only room in the hotel where I actually felt a very heavy presence. I did not feel this way in what is claimed to be the most haunted room of the hotel, the Red Room. That is why you hear me asking in the beginning if this was the Red Room. I had heard that it was the most haunted room in the hotel, so when I started to feel unwell, I thought that's where we were. You also hear me asking about the capacity in the room. There were so many people crammed into the room that it felt like the floor was going to give out under all the weight. Around that time, I felt like something was trying to possess me and the battery to my camera ran out. When we entered the other room, I tried turning on my camera again, and it turned on but with a very drained battery.

Other activity that night: In one of the other rooms, we heard the loud banging of a door (also caught on video), but we were unable to verify if it could have been one of the other guests playing a trick on us.

In another room, I caught what appeared to be a little boy's reflection as he stared into a tv that was in the the room.

In the Red Room, my video camera for some reason was recording very blurry. However, I suspect that that had to do with the lighting in the room, as they had a red neon light to give accent to the Red Room.

About the La Borde Hotel:
There are rumors of suicides and murders and death in the hotel. The most famous being of a girl who committed suicide and who's haunting is most experienced by the guests who have stayed the night.

The hotel was built in 1899. It is located one block from the Rio Grande river and Mexico. It was originally the home of Francoise La Borde. It also served as a travelers' way-station for many years.

In April 1982, the historic La Borde House opened as a luxurious, full-service hotel.
