Playing tourist...

Last week Mom and I decided to visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center here in Albuquerque.  We had lunch in the Pueblo Harvest Cafe which has a fantastic view of the Sandia Mountains.  I ordered the chicken quasadilla...very yummy!!  We then paid admission to the museum ($4 for New Mexico residents!).

Dancers from the Nambe tribe performed in the courtyard.  I am not sure how they could stand the heat, but it was fantastic to watch.

After the performance we explored the museum.  There was wonderful pottery, artwork, historical artifacts, and a nice gift shop.  We had a great time!!  (Plus the air conditioning was heavenly!!!!)  If you are ever in the Albuquerque area it is worth a visit.  

What have you discovered recently in your town?

  2. I am glad you found my blog too!! There are several things I have always wanted to do here in Albuquerque. With my Mom living here, now I have someone who likes to do those things as well. I am looking forward to more opportunities to play tourist!!
