Taos, New Mexico is really a great town. It’s laid back, hippy-like and artsy. Most of the stores and galleries open around 10ish and close around 5ish. No one seemed to be in a rush. The car wash took almost an hour and there were only a few in the line up. Horses, cows, goats and rams were along the road in the middle of the downtown area. I like the feel of this city. So I want to share it. Enjoy the photos below.
Once an historical church this gorgeous restaurant forages their menu regularly. I love places that do that. Make a reservation. This place fills up fast.
My box braids are holding up nicely. Thanks Mom!
Later that night.
Venison. You guys know this was not my meal. Antelope is also on the menu. Their meats are not Wild Game. The animals are raised for this purpose.
Just give the Chef notice and a delicious vegan meal will be prepared for you. Rice, quinoa, broccoli rabe, spinach, squash and tomatoes. Deeelicious!
I purchased this Tomahawk at the Taos Pueblo village. I wish I had pictures to post. I was not allowed to use my camera or cell phone and I respectfully abided by their wishes. On January 1 there were dances for tourists throughout the day. Personally I did not like the dance. The men in the village made one motion during the entire routine. I thought it would be more, but then I thought, maybe that performance was for tourists only. True traditional dances are probably kept secret within the tribe as they should be. The village however was spectacular. There were mud houses with colorful doors and straw roofs, a grave yard, a half frozen running river, dirt roads and so much more. This village is considered a world heritage site as well as a national historic landmark. The photo of the village below is something I found on the internet. I wanted to give you something to go by.
There are people rafting in the river. Can you see the red boat in the water?
During my trip I moistened my hair naturally in the shower and applied my homemade hair cream daily to my scalp and braids.
