Old Town Albuquerque

Yesterday, I visited Old Town. Here I am at the San Felipe de Neri church.
It was established in 1706.
Old Town has a lot of neat tourists shops.
A store called Old Town Rug and Basket
is our favorite place for little souvenirs.

A band called the Swamp Coolers
was playing music in the plaza gazebo
on Sunday afternoon.



Everywhere I looked,
Old Town had a Route 66/Albuquerque
kind of feel to it.
Another taste of New Mexico, anyone?



The little plazuelas off the main plaza
are nooks to discover!



This fountain looks like a water well!


Another sunny plazuela,
and a little fountain!


Then Just Through the Path,
Leading to the Other Side of the Wall:



Crumbling old stucco walls and vintage New Mexico

gives way to the Albuquerque Museum.



This fountain is a part of the modern art landscaping.


Where Old Mexico Meets New Mexico
