My Roadtrip: An Aussie in America Day 9

Friday 1st November 1996

Durango to Albuquerque Via Santa Fe

I wasn't surprised that I had a hangover this morning..they made us get up at 6.30am for a group photo. On the road heading for Santa Fe. We arrived around midday.

We had an amazing authentic Mexician lunch at a restaurant called The Ore House.

We shopped in the afternoon looking at beautiful indian jewellery. I loved the buildings in Santa Fe, the earthy tones of the adobe construction were beautiful.

We arrived in Albuquerque in the late afternoon, and again ate mexician food for dinner. My favourite!

We had a quiet night at the bar, drinking "Golden Dream" cocktails and just hanging out with the group.

Santa Fe, New Mexico
