Meal In Taos

When we went to Taos, we ate lunch at The Gorge.  It's a lovely little place right on the square.  I had a french dip sandwich, and Mom had enchiladas and watermelon margaritas.  The food was very good, even if there was too much of it.  After the meal, we visited several shops and the Kit Carson museum.

Compounded Santa Fe

 Mom really wanted to go to The Compound while we were in Santa Fe in Angust, so we went.  I loved the soup, and the onion rings were spot on.  Our main courses weren't bad either.  I'd recommend this place!

New Mexico Wine

These are the kinds of wines I bought in New Mexico.  When I tasted them they were pretty good.  Now to get them to Kosovo.

Wine Stop

This is the entrance to what is supposedly the oldest winery in New Mexico.  We stopped and tasted.  We bought wine.

The Rio Grande

We stopped at the side of the road to capture the view.  This is the Rio Grande river in New Mexico.  It winds close to the road from Santa Fe to Taos.  The weather wasn't that hot, and the hills were dotted with color.

New Mexico Sunflowers

These sunflowers were blooming merrily at a layby on the way between Santa Fe and Taos.

New Mexico Landscapes

We drove from Santa Fe to Taos and back one day last month, and I took photos of some of the landscape.  It was surprisingly green for August.  This was very close to the Rio Grande river though.

Same Place, Lunch

Since we had walked most of the Indian market, we decided to do lunch at the same place we'd had dinner - La Plazuela.  I had deconstructed nachos (otherwise known as make your own) and an iced tea.  It felt good to sit down.  There was far too much food, though.

A Bit Of Food, A Bit Of Atmosphere

We went to the restaurant in La Plazuela, a hotel in downtown Santa Fe, and were greeted by this pretty lit tree.  I have a margarita and some prime rib - things hard to get, especially done right, in Angola.  Mom had salmon.  We sat right next to the fountain and listened to the water's music.  It was a beautiful dinner.

Beaded Headband

Bought this at a permanent booth in Santa Fe.  I'm pretty certain it's cheap and Chinese, but it looks good in my hair.

Hair Feather

I bought this macaw feather at the Indian Market in Santa Fe.  Guess I will have to wear it soon.

Basketweave Earrings

This artist uses traditional basketweave techniques to make jewelry.  Her earrings are made of wire and stone, and she even uses the harder version of basketweave of going clockwise instead of counterclockwise.  I love the look and the creativity and boldness of translating the technique to a complete new medium.

Another Blurry Photo

I couldn't get the camera to focus on these earrings, either.  The left ones are made of wampum shells.  The right is Acoma pottery.  Acoma pottery reminds me of the Romanian pottery I bought when we were in Moldova.

Lapis Earrings

For some reason, I could not get the camera to focus properly on these earrings.  Anyway, they're about two inches  tall, lapis, and the gold is actually gold over copper.  Bought them in Taos.

Blingy Barrette

This hand beaded barrette was found at Indian Market in Santa Fe a week ago.  It's all sparkly and pretty in my hair.  It even matches the kurtas I brought with me.
