...and farmer/artist markets
our first night in town, Guy and Mel took us to this little burger joint called Guacamole's. If you're in the area, you have to stop!!! It's got it all: beer, great burgers, fresh potato chips and dining al fresca
we sat next to the fire place, which I'm sure comes in handy with these cool desert nights....but it was beautiful the night we were there! (aren't the little pineapple table numbers awesome?!?)
saturday morning, Jim had his big written test so Guy and Mel took me to the local farmer/artist market downtown.
I really need to grab some of these cute hanging peppers before we leave!
this couple was so cute....I could have sat and watched them all day long!
every week, this gentleman draws a different picture on the square....he does amazing work!
of course there were plenty of veggies (but we know what they look like!)
oh, the artists though! so cool, so diverse!
this man makes light shades out of tin cans! if you get a chance, check him out at Cantastiks!
the new mexico soaps were pretty cool---lots of neat shapes and scents---and they were friends of Guy and Mel and were super nice!
another street musician.
art is everywhere in the city....
this will be the new home to the market....I love how the metal rebar and studs will rust and change as time goes by...very NM!
these people are cementing the square with colored cement...the skill and patience involved is mind blowing....all this for something people will walk on!
so, are you bored with our trip yet? I have so much more to show you....it's amazing how much variety surrounds this town...we've only been down here a week and yet I feel like I have begun to tell you anything!
Oh....and Jim passed his first test...hence us staying down here for the week....the next one is today at 10:30 (11:30 our time)...prayers appreciated!
