Comentarios sobre Nuevo México

Come visit for Christmas, if you can. On Christmas Eve, everyone's houses are lined with luminarias (paper bags with candles), and everyone walks through town and visits. It's a beautiful, non-commercial, community-oriented way to spend Christmas! Also, the best restaurant in town is Fuego, in La Posada de Santa Fe-- but it's VERY expensive. If you enjoy the arts or architecture, be sure to visit the Santa Fe Opera House. It's a gorgeous semi-outdoors building-- I saw Carmen there, and during her death scene, we were also watching a lightning storm. Cold, but fabulous! Santa Fe is a great place to visit. Be warned, however, that the shopping is expensive-- and if you don't like pretentious art galleries and boutiques, you probably won't enjoy shopping there at all.
Alburquerque has its charms but I lived in town one fall near UNM and I've never seen that much police activity in my life. Also going around town you are pretty much guilty until proven innocent for anything. I think businesses get swindled a lot so you are kept watch over. After visiting in winter for eight years it's kinda wearing on me. Crime, drugs, and who knows what else, and now drug violence from Mexico! Good food, pretty old town, and the outdoor places/activities make up for it as well as the river, mountain, and petroglyphs trails.
One of the greatest aspects of Alburquerque is the blending of so many different cultures- Hispanic, Native American (several cultures) and Anglo. If you only stay at Nob Hill, you only get to experience a tiny piece of what Albuquerque (and New Mexico) is. Definitely come in the beginning of October for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta- the largest single gathering of hot air balloons in the world. It draws balloonists from all over the world- Africa, China, Japan, Germany, Great Britian, France, Russia, the Czech Republic... I could go on forever. It is one of the most amazing things you will ever experience in your life. Bring a camera! The weather in October is perfect as well. Take the tram from the base of the Sandia Mountains to the crest- especially for sunset. Albuquerque is a beautiful city that shouldn't be missed.
Alburquerque doesn't have much going for it except for the area called Nob Hill around the U of New Mexico. A funky, hip enclave of intreresting stores, restaurants and galleries.
I liked Alburquerque.
Santa Fe is a very nice community. If you like the food from the area, you will enjoy it. If you have the time, take a run to Taos, especially if you like to shop or engage in winter sports.
