Today was only a short drive so we decided to have a later breakfast than usual and spend the rest of the morning in Santa Fe. We walked around the plaza and had a Fajita from a street food vendor. Santa Fe is beautiful and there are native Indians selling their handmade jewellery from the street.
After walking round for an hour or so we decided to head on to Albuquerque which was only about an hours drive away. We firstly stopped off at Bernallilo for a drive through the main streets, stopping at Walgreens to buy each other an Easter egg.
Next stop was at the Sandia Peak Tramway, which is in fact a cable car that takes you up to the top of the Sandia Peak. After the 15 minute journey up there to just over 10 thousand feet we took photos and saw the vast view of New Mexico before heading back down.
We then headed to our hotel to check in and drop off our cases. After an hour or so rest we headed to old town Albuquerque, being Easter Sunday and after 5pm most of the places were shut except a huge souvenir shop and a restaurant or two. The main plaza is beautiful Spanish style buildings and a small green area in the centre. With everything being shut we went to the “original hacienda restaurant” where the Tacos were disappointing but I had a huge glass of margarita which seemed to get me tipsy fairly quickly. On the way back to the hotel we stopped at the 7eleven and got a $3 bottle of sangria and headed back to eat our Cadbury Mini eggs and have a little drink.
Longer drive tomorrow so a quick shower and an early night!
Night all xx
