Green Chile and Donkey Kong
It's official we're New Mexicans! We have been so busy and are just having an amazing time here in Santa Fe. So far we have walked down Guadalupe Street to the Cowgirl BBQ to play pool, enjoy a few PBRs on tap (OK, that's what Matt drank, I classed it up with a fat tire), and have dinner. It was awesome. On Saturday, we went to the farmer's market, which is currently located right next door to our house, and got all sorts of goodies including fresh roasted green chile - yum. Later that night we had more green chile and lots of local delicacies at a dinner at Justice Serna's house, where we met wonderful people who all treated us like family. Labor day we ventured down to the Plaza for an arts and crafts show and took little Scarlett with us. She did well, but still has lots of learning to do about how to behave in public. That night, Matthew and I walked next door to the DeVargas Center to see a movie at the little independent movie theater. We saw the documentary, The King of Kong: A fist full of quarters, which was really, really good. We are so happy to be in community with so much going and where we can walk everywhere again! Yesterday Matthew walked to his first day of work and Scarlett and I waved (and woofed) goodbye. Tomorrow we are going to the burning of Zozobra, a huge tradition in Santa Fe held during Fiesta, which is celebrated all this week. We are really excited!
