The landscape is the same, but changes slowly to buttes and mesas, some flat and some razored like a lizard’s back.
The houses here are all brown. The buildings downtown are brown. The University of New Mexico is brown. Everywhere I look there are no colors, just brown. Not sure that I like this.
Old Town was different, much different, than when I was a child or pre-teen. The square still has Indian blankets spread out, with jewelry offered for sale, but not many Native Americans manning them. I only counted 5 blankets. There used to be so many.
The square has turned into expensive shops with pottery, dream catchers, and jewelry beyond my budget.
I buy a $24 pair of earrings off the blankets.
The park warns today of 50-55 mph wind gusts for the next couple of days. Katy bar the door!
I will have dinner with a friend tomorrow.
That is about all I have to say about this city. It is a sprawling, large, dust bowl of brown.
Don’t really like it here.
Albuquerque sounds so dingy and expensive. How big is it in population?
Is it windy now?
The wind seems to have died down, or at least Serenity isn’t rocking anymore. Google puts population at 521,999.
Albuquerque itself is not beautiful, but the Sandia Mountains are stunning didn’t you think?
Yes I’d have to agree. Desert mountains are amazingly gorgeous.
