Old Town Albuquerque

Albuquerque, United States

So our full day in Albuquerque we decided to visit the old town which we heard was pretty nice. After walking a few Miles we came across the old tow shopping plaza, this consisted of a walgreens, a subway, a religious store, a 99cents store and a baskin robbins! Needless to say we were a little disappointed...so Sunil headed to the aquarium while I tried to find a new bag after I broke my other on the way here! While I was sitting on the bench waiting for his return I could see only a rock and feather store, a cigar store, a rug store and a moccasin store...I tried to hold my excitement until Sunil returned!! I was totally unprepared for what there was in store for us....there was literally strange little shop after strange little shop!! Like a whole hidden world. It actually turned out to be a really nice area and a lot of fun to look around, which we spent a few hours doing before we went for a mexican! Anyways...off to Flagstaff today so Ill write from there!!

Lovely listening to you last night Liz, glad Albuquerque was better than you originally thought with lots of "querque" little shops - is that how it got its name do you think?!!!
Hope you get to see the match tonight.
Love Mum xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
