Sante FeAugust 4, 2016 in the United States
This New Mexico city is known for a vibrant arts scene, as historic and culturally important for Native Americans, Spanish settlers and rail enthusiasts. You may remember Jesse and his girlfriend visit the Georgia O'Keefe gallery on Breaking Bad, Albuquerque is about an hour south of here.
4 hours on the coach from Durango. Unfortunately it was Joanne's turn for a hangover... someone had to christen the lavatory on the bus (wasn't the only one). Any other day we would have been all over the museums, galleries and historic places in Sante Fe.
We did make it to the St Francis of Assisi Basilica and the the oldest church in the US which was a Spanish mission built in the 1600s. Evidence of Native American inhabitants dating back to the 1300s was also found on the site during restoration.
Sante Fe also features oldest house in the US, many of the modern homes and buildings are designed in adobe style and they can only be coloured brown (30 official shades to choose from).
We enjoyed street food in the plaza for lunch and the whole group went to Blue Corn Brewery for dinner and some more Mexican cuisine Mmm mmmm!
We're a bit behind on blog entries as we haven't had any down time and the photos etc are across 3 devices. Yesterday we had some bad luck, Josh's memory card in his phone stopped working, hopefully we can retrieve the photos. Expect the dates on posts to jump around a bit. We have 4 hours on the coach today and 8 hours tomorrow to hopefully catch up!Read more
