Home Sweet Albuquerque

ABQ Rainbow

While we made it to the Land of Enchantment on day four, we didn’t reach Albuquerque until our fifth day.

It took us a couple days of driving around the city to get fully acquainted with the different neighborhoods. We stayed in Old Town and while we ended up going out to a few overpriced, mediocre restaurants, we found a great Mexican supermarket where we bought beer and snacks.

Indian Pueblo Cultural Center

We went to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center for lunch and it was easily the best meal I’ve had in ABQ so far. The museum was really great, exhibiting information and artwork from each of the pueblo communities in New Mexico. We also got to see a group of Navajo dancers perform three different dances. They shared with us their gourd dance, sash belt dance, and a dance to honor veterans.
