Wow...my first trip in over a month...but just a quick one. A few travel irritants, but its December, and I'm in the Christmas spirit...so, no rants :)
My stay at the Albuquerque Marriott was pleasant, but definitely a bit of sameness here. Lots of new development around this area, which means brand new box stores and brand new chain restaurants. Such is the mark of progress in suburbia. Still, there is a small, homey charm to Albuquerque...and the looming mountains with snow are a welcomed distraction. The freezing temps at night kept the air clean for a serene crescent moon.
