I have spent more time in New Mexico than any other state other than Texas, even before 2003.
Of all the places in New Mexico I love, Santa Fe is my favorite. The attitude there is laid back, comfortable, and relaxed.
That may be one factor why the city never can quite keep it together. They’re coming up on their 400th anniversary, which is a follow up to the big celebration 50 years ago of their 350th anniversary. Except the town was founded before they thought it was, back when they had the 350th anniversary, so they think this 400th will actually be its 403rd anniversary, maybe. They don’t really know, and if I know Santa Fe residents, they won’t be picky about letting the truth get in the way of a good party.
And that time capsule they’ve been looking everywhere for, left over from the celebration 50 years ago? Oops.
