We ate lunch at Tia Sophia's, which has some of the best rellenos in town
We always ordered our food with Christmas colored peppers, which is to say, the peppers are red and green.
Tia Sophia's serves piping hot pillows of sopapillas with meals
I want to go back now. I really do, and just for a taste.
Lensic theater next to Burro Alley
This guy was just begging to be photographed. Looks like a high plains drifter with his Burro.
The chapels around Santa Fe are truly beautiful.
Another picture of our drifter friend
In the shade
YOu can tell we are several days into the trip. My picture taking is beginning to annoy Kristin.
Metal Lizard that has nothing to do with anything
A random street
Golden Doodle that looks like one of the Ramone brothers
This second hand store was gigantic and so so so amazing. From vintage Valentino to old beat up hand embroidered cowboy shirts, this place had it all. Double Take. Go there.
God is love.
Some recreational biking
These were placed so oddly.
This looked like a legitimate place to pick up some interesting wares.
Probably not edible, but definitely colorful
The oldest house in the United States is what the plaque said. Look upon it ye readers, and know.
Here we are inching on to the very prestigious Canyon Road, a mecca for fine art.
A modern sculpture
The art on Canyon road is very expensive and people come from all over the world to visit the galleries here.
A silver Bird
The structures along Canyon Road are dressed up rather beautifully
A celebratory tree
Only in Santa Fe does a rusty gate look so great
Canyon Road Style
Rugs for the taking
Entry in HDR
I finally met up with Kristin for drinks at Santa Fe Pink Adobe and Dragon Room
The shady capital building
Yes! Head of hair dog.
We got take out from this place, Vinaigrette.
The interior was utilitarian chic. They were having a contest to guess the weight of the pumpkin there in the picture.
I liked the tool box thing next to the toilet
It was a very well designed restaurant
Fun but simple
Kristin surprised me for my birthday. She just told me to drive, but did not tell me to where. She gave the directions, and has we got further and further away from Santa Fe I became more confused. Eventually we came upon a Japanese spa, called 10,000 Waves.
Kristin reserved us the Ichiban private bath. We followed the signs.
The entry, looks foreboding, but we pulled open the door to many a Japanese delight.
Our Shower, which was awesome.
You fill up this bucket with water and dump it over your head. It was way more fun than it sounds.
Our personal sauna
The super high tech toilet
Lots of interesting controls
We had two outdoor spas in a Japanese garden. It was a very cold night, which made the experience perfect.
Very hot water
There is a little nook back there for napping
