We had lunch at the infamous DogHouse, where I learned that a chili dog would clear out my sinuses for the next month. It's going to take me a while to get used to the heat here - and I'm not talking about the weather.
After a great lunch, we drove to Old Town and strolled around, looking at the myriad of local shops that make up this eclectic and beautiful part of ABQ. Historic Old Town has been the heart of Albuquerque since the city was founded here in 1706. Today, Old Town is the city's cultural center, with numerous museums and more than 100 shops, galleries and restaurants.
I managed to control myself with only a throw and salt and pepper shakers. Dave got a summer and a winter cowboy hat. Pictures will follow.
We only saw a small portion of Old Town today, but Susan and I are already planning another trip next week. It's truly a gem of ABQ!
