We spent Saturday in downtown Santa Fe, walking through the old part of the city, sitting in the plaza and buying tamales from a stand.
While I can't say I found the people particularly friendly, I have very fond feelings about the city. The architecture and the plaza strongly remind me of my time as an adolescent in Mexico. I remember sitting in the plazas in Queretaro or other cities. The flat-roofed houses with the walls around them remind me of our home in San Luis Potosi.
I will add pictures later. PRM
