Where Have I Been

... you might ask due to the lengthy time between posts. Well, I was in Santa Fe, NM for a long weekend this past weekend, and had a great time. The weather was between the high 20s and the low 50s, with clear blue skies almost every day. The cool weather is exactly what Frank and I were hoping for, however the only snow we saw was on the high road to Taos. Hey, I am not complaining... it was still a great time.

I ate (no surprise), everything from Roasted Acorn Squash filled with a chipotle cream vegetable stew (Cafe Pasqual's), to duck breast in a cherry sauce on a potato gallette, (315 Restaurant and Wine Bar), to an eggplant and tomato pasta, (Osteria di Assissi), to a juicy medium rare steak (Railyard Restaurant), to breakfast crepes (twice - Cafe Paris and  French Pastry Shop & Restaurant), and wonderful tamales (Tia Sophia's). 

and... we were "cultured" by a visit to SITE Santa Fe 2008 Biennial, a very interesting exhibit of "art" created by an international collection of artists who were give a budget of $7,500 to create their installation which included everything an interactive "touch the wall" exhibit, video presentations, an elevated ramp that ended in an optional jump to mats below, and a bronze sculpture based on Roswell UFO sightings, to name only a few. 

We also attended a performance of the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra at the Lensic Theatre (build in 1931) to hear BartokHungarian Sketches, Dvor├ík, Cello Concerto, and Brahms, Symphony No. 1.

Santa Fe... good food, good shopping, very nice people... go if you get the opportunity

Glad you both had a great time!
