I was in New Mexico for a few much anticipated days of vacation. The only technology I brought was my phone and a camera. Although I tried on day 2 to post something via the phone, it's just too cumbersome for more than tweeting (at least for my clumsy thumbs!). Besides, now I have stories (and pictures) galore to share. All I need now is...time!

Toward evening, we went to Old Town, the original city center of Albuquerque, with its plaza facing the Church of San Felipe. (We ducked into Church just as Mass was starting just to take a peek.) Since it was a Saturday and the day after the "Day of the Dead," there was an informal parade of people dressed in skeleton costumes.

encounter with the Addams Family
|Some people went all out. The lady (on the left!) carried a|
mask that had a mantilla that completely covered her head.
