Cross Country - Day 8

I hope you are having nice holidays!


I photographed this little fellow in Albuquerque where I spent Christmas Eve. You might not be a big fan of the festive, but when you are alone on the road the old town of Albuquerque might be the place to be. The whole place was decorated with hundreds and hundreds of brown paper bags with candles inside. Everybody was very much in the mood. People singing, enjoying, and drinking hot chocolate (it was cold). So yeah, I definitely prefer cheesiness over a shady motel room on such a night.

Ahh, I miss the luminarias of New Mexico. They really have a great impact with snow in the background.

Lovely little pup but doesn't look like he can carry many presents!

Yeah he is already struggling with the costume :)

Old Town: I know it well and have always wanted to see the square during the holidays. If you have the chance to go to Acoma Pueblo (Sky City) you would enjoy it I think.

Sky City...I think I came across that name. Have to look it up again.

Sky City is only 90 minutes of so from Albuquerque. Plus, since Old Town is in the SE quadrant, no cross-town traffic to take. :)

Happy belated X'mas! I sent you a msg from Oregon but I guess you didn't get it. Anyway, drive safe and enjoy the rest of your trip~

Oliver said...

No I didn't get it. And I also didn't know you went to Oregon. uhm..I'll send you a msg from my new number.
