land of enchantment

Is there a better way to start your day in Albuquerque? I think not.

While Somebody attended his conference, I attended the tourist sites. I spent a few hours wandering through Old Town, the historic district that is mainly tourist shops. I discovered on my first trip to Boston that the best way to really feel a town is to spend some time walking around the streets. Of course the "walking" and shopping areas of most towns don't really give you a full picture of the town, but it's amazing how much of the feeling of the town is still there. I also love the aloneness of the experience. While I love sharing experiences with Somebody, it is important to both of us that we know how to be alive on our own, and to form opinions on our own. I love wandering on my own.

New Mexico is obsessed with peppers. You can't escape them.

I like that about you and Somebody - that you didn't decide "now we're married and we'll have no identity outside of each other." I think that's pretty awesome. Sounds like a great trip!
