May 2007 Vacation

Russ and I just returned from a wonderfully restful vacation in Santa Fe New Mexico. I grew up in New Mexico, and it is always a wonderful treat for me to return to the place where I once called home.
p>There is no place like it on earth. The sunlight is a golden, peachy and lavender glow that just surrounds you with a spectrum of warmth. The food which combines the Native American, Mexican and Spanish traditions includes the flavors of New Mexico Chile (you have not tasted CHILE until you taste New Mexico chile) and Blue Corn. There is fried bread called Sopaipillas that puff up when they are cooked, and become a hollow opening for local honey to be poured into the center and eaten.
Artists since the last century have journeyed to Santa Fe in search of this magnificent culture and light. So..you can spend days just browsing the artist galleries.
