Next Stop after balloons – Santa Fe !!

Santa Fe is a wonderful place to be, with its adobe buildings, sagebrush vegetation, Mexican cuisine, beautiful old churches, art galleries, and shopping (especially for jewelry and southwest theme items). After the  Balloon Festival  I drove (1 hour) to Santa Fe from Albuquerque to stay for a couple of days at the tranquil (and I highly recommend)  St Francis Hotel,  conveniently located  in the heart of the Historic Plaza Square area. The Plaza area is always  a fun place to stroll.  I am  enjoying every aspect of this city and I even tried something brand new – a Blue Corn Tortilla Pancake. Yes, it was blue and it was great! I  also especially like to stroll with my camera and look for  those perfect “Santa Fe” shots….
