The reason for this title is that we were so happy to have Marc & his android with us on this trip. I'll tell you, that android could spoil you in a quick minute, the way it would pull up any and all information we needed.
July 18-23, 2012 Marc, Mickey & I took a trip to New Mexico. On Thursday, the 19th, we spent the entire day in SANTA FE for the sole purpose of reminiscing and showing Marc some of the many spots of my childhood. It was a WONDERFUL, very emotional day for me.
We, of course, spent a lot of time walking around the plaza, downtown and the various shops. I priced both my squash blossom necklace and my concho belt and was pleasantly surprised at their value!!!
Tired, HOT, and very hungry we used Android to locate a cafe to get some good, authentic MEXICAN food with green chili. Turned out we made a good choice with The Horseman's Haven. When I was growing up the High School Sports Team was called Demon's, but a number of years ago a controversay arose over the name "Demon" and it was changed to Horseman.
The sad and final stop of our journey this day was here where my father, mother & 1/2 sister, Marion, are buried.
Then it was time to drive the 60 miles back to Albuquerque where Marc picked up his rental car so we wouldn't be tied at the hips for the entire trip.
The next day, Friday, Marc meet up with a high school friend from his past, Lorri, and they spent the afternoon reminiscing at the Albuquerque sights of their days, rode the tram to the Sandia Crest and went out for dinner. Mickey & I began attending the Hebraic Roots Conference we had come for. THAT will be a separate post.
