Albuquerque, New MexicoJune 7, 2015 in the United States
Arriving in Albuquerque after an overnight bus from Phoenix was not ideal... Especially after Cheryl, the girls from Florida, Anne from UK & I went to the Welcome diner for dinner and enjoyed one too many cocktails!!!
Nevertheless, my stomach was crying out to be attended to, so stoped (backpack, bags, kitchen sink and all) for a coffee and breakfast at the flying star cafe! Had a great coffee, vegan scramble and free wifi! I ended up staying for 2.5 hours! (Also due tobyhe fact my hostel probably would t be able to check me in straight away!)
After breakfast I make the trek to the "Route 66 Hostel"! I had read the reviews on trip advisor so i expected an old run down hostel which is what I got! But it has the basics so cant complain!
After a three hour nap... I Went into old town and stumbled across a street fair with some amazing country and Mexican music! All i needed was a deck chair and i would have parked up for the afternoon/ night!
Moving on down to downtown Albequerque i end up having dinner and a few beers at the Libary sports bar, people watching from my bar stool on the patio overlooking route 66. It was amazing to see all the old cars done up and blasting all different kinds of music (many doing bog laps so i got to see them mote then once)! Leaving a bit tipsy and with promises to the staff i would be back I desperatley power walk back to the hostel before they lock up for the night (thy have a side door with a three digit code entrance that i can not remember!)Read more
