My wife and I just got back from our short belated honeymoon to New Mexico. One of her mothers and her mother’s wife live in Albuquerque. She was nice enough to buy us tickets to visit them as a honeymoon present. It was an eye opening experience for me and I enjoyed a lot of it.
I learned a lot about New Mexico that I did not know before. Some of the facts were sad — like they are close to the poorest state in the nation, and some were rad — like Microsoft was actually founded in Albuquerque. I also learned that a TV show about meth dealing spells money making opportunity for so many different ventures. Seriously we saw something called Breaking Bath Salts. A candy confectioner also made blue meth-style rock candy that was even distributed to members of the cast. Sadly, the Breaking Bad open air trolley tour only operates May through October due to the weather issues that high elevation causes. I would have jumped at the chance for a three-hour tour of Walter White’s world. This was really the first vacation Carolina and I took together. Lots of memories were made and I am happy about that.
So dear readers, tell me about your favorite vacation memory. Did you go to Paris, find a gateway to the past and meet the lovely Marion Cotillard? Seriously, I loved that movie. Did you take a three-hour tour that turned into a cast away-type situation? I really hope you didn’t end up on an island off the coast of Washington with Nic Cage and bees. That would be bad.
