One of the joys of travel is meeting people.
I was lucky to meet these delightful California blondes on the shuttle from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. They were going to the OPA exhibition to support their artist friend, Eli, who now lives on the other side of the country. I didn't meet Eli at the exhibition, it was CROWDED, but I did meet her on the plaza on Sunday afternoon, painting.
Cindy and Heidi (me in the middle) were also staying at the Inn of the Governors. Here we are in the Del Charro Bar and Restaurant. It's advertised that Del Charro has the best margarita in Santa Fe ($6.00). They certainly had the best corn chowder, with very reasonable prices and good service.
The Inn of the Governors also has a fabulous hot & cold breakfast buffet included in the price of your room, and it certainly helps make your stay in Santa Fe more economical. I would recommend the hotel to anyone. It's just two short blocks south of the plaza, and the Sandia Shuttle will drop you off and pick you up right at your hotel, or B&B, no matter which hotel you are staying at.
