Makes me kinda uneasy how they might settle a dispute over the check . . even the seating reminds me of 20 paces . .

Where else! I've always been a sucker for New Mexico, somehow it's not like everywhere else.

21 Nov 2012 6:52am

@Richard: It is truly its own world. Like it's not part of America. Fascinating. Has it's own cuisine. I ate nothing but red and green chili for days.

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

The riffle is essential, at the frontier.
I love the composition.

@Gérard Beullac: Never go to the Frontier without a rifle!

Yee ha!
Is this Nascar country or is that further north?

21 Nov 2012 5:26pm

@The Mouse: No Nascar in New Mexico. These are the descendants of conquistadors. It's another world. Definitely the old west. Amazing place.

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

By the way, lovely shot, i would eat here.

@The Mouse: Best chili and their famous sweet rolls!

Hey your conversation with Mouse...I am reminded to ask....You DID have Sopaipillas, didn't you?!? NO trip to New Mexico is to be taken unless mass amounts of sopaipillas are consummed....Having lived in Alamosa as a kind (Johhny& You spoke of it) we took" many-a-trip" to Taos, ABQ, Santa Fe etc,,and ate LOTS of REAL Enchiladas (the kind that lay flat on the plate and stacked like pancakes) and even more sopaipillas....OK I tool more than my time on the floor - sorry

@Denny Jump Photo: We all had a long conversation about sopaipillas when we were there. Funny you should mention. They ARE the best! Everyone agrees!

When I lived in Texas I visited frequently and loved it. You're right about the cuisine.

i know it's a bit like seeing things in clouds, but the rifle makes a fine mouth to the horned moustache and picture frame eyes.
