While there I didn't have a means to load photos to my iPad so didn't blog the progress and this far off it seems less urgent. But see seemeinny.blogspot.com for progress reports!
I will list the highlights.
1. Celia's company on a relaxed holiday (not racing from one place to the next)
|Overlooking the Rio Grande|
|Celia in the model at the Museum of New mexico|
Inn of the Governors I stayed overnight here in 1974 for a huge sum of $20 per night) and it is not how I remember (I remember nothing really) but it was charming friendly, comfortable, and a short walk form the central Plaza.
|The Front Door|
|Our Christmas arrangement|
3. The weather.
While I am a terrible chilli eater (mild is even hot to me) i was surprised how delicious was the food . Santa Fe is a food capital of USA and Celia gave me 2 presents ( and more) A walking tour of Santa Fe restaurants and a Tapas demonstration class. Both fantastic!!

This was along Canyon Road and was a magical experience and the bags with a tea light lined the road. In some areas they are called Luminarias
