Being Like Jesus In Santa Fe
Saw this article in Saturday's New York Times. It is about hanging out in Santa Fe, New Mexico on a budget. The writer, Matt Gross, details how he and his mother took on Santa Fe on a $500 budget. It included good eats, a comfortable hotel stay, visiting O'Keeffe's and other galleries, enjoying nature, and a communal (clothing optional) bath.
Articles like this are very entertaining and interesting. Neither of The Feds that recently were visiting the workplace had ever been to Kansas City. They indicated that their familiarity with the city was based on "36 Hours in Kansas City," an article that was published in The Times back in 2003.
Prices have gone up, some places have closed, many have opened, but the gist of the article is still true. It doesn't include all my favorite haunts, but it does mention good ones.
I can't wait to return to Santa Fe to visit family and check out some of what Mr. Gross suggests. Maybe not the communal bath.
Much like Jesus, I always have a goal to save. Just saying you're from Connecticut can get you a free tickets to the International Folk Art Market. On a Sunday, at least. Tips on how to enjoy without spending your life's savings are always good to have in the back pocket. And knowing what are the don't-miss spots is very useful. In any city!
