New Mexico

Last week, I was in Santa Fe, NM, even though my knowledge of New Mexico was essentially limited to Georgia O’Keeffe and  my coworker, Karen.

Home base was in Santa Fe, but we also made trips out to Albuquerque, Madrid, and Taos Pueblo, all of which were fantastic. As someone from one of the most densely populated states, it was mesmerizing to see so much empty space. It was like an infinite landscape. No matter how far you drove, you still saw nothing but mountains, desert, and the occasional cow. And it was beautiful.

My favorite tidbit that I learned was that when you ask for both red and green chili on your food, it’s called “Christmas.” Cute, no?
