  Albuquerque  
 
 
 

 I first moved to Albuquerque with my parents in 1956, growing up there, and moving back on an intermittant basis.  Robin and I lived there from 1992 to 1994 when the AT&T office closed.  It is my hope to return despite the fact that Albuquerque home prices and property taxes have gone from reasonable to outrageous in a short time.  If this is not possible, I am looking for a home elsewhere in New Mexico.

Robin and I really enjoyed Albuquerque with weekly dining out at La Placita Mexican Restraunt in Old Town or Bella Vista (now out of business) in Sandia Park on the road to Sandia Crest.  Bella Vista feaured fine dining at moderate prices.  Robin usually ordered the trout.  She was really annoyed that they never cut the head off the trout..  After the trout is cooked, it is possible to lift out the entire skelton from head to tail.  One night Robin put the whole trout skelton into our water pitcher before we left.  What she didn't notice that if there was water in a pitcher, the wait-staff would place it onto another table.  I could imagine the reaction of the next guest when he/she poured their water and the fish bones plopped out!  Robin wondered why we received very slow service the next time.  (After all, we were frequent customers!)

ROUTE 66: ph route 66 20100524.jpg

I remember when 66 was a 2 lane highway and seeing the lights of Albuquerque both from Tijeras Canyon to the east of town and 20 mile hill from the west. Really enjoyable!

I also remember when people actually went downtown Albuquerque to shop. That was before Winrock Center opened. 

Albuquerque was featured in a Route 66 story on NBC's Today Show. Check out the clip

0 ab ancient civilizations.jpg <Ancient Civilications Screensaver Long before the fall of the Roman Empire, the American southwest was a center of civilization for the Anasasi and Fremont Indians. Amazing cliff dwellings cling to overhangs in fortress-like cliffs, where petroglyphs and hand prints made by ancient artists decorate rock walls as evidence of their social structure. The question of what happened to these early Native Americans still remains a mystery, and one which you can ponder as you enjoy these 33 full-color images of prehistoric sites.
