I had a trip planned to visit Santa Fe, New Mexico and I was traveling on my own. After landing in Albuquerque I learned my suitcase had not made the flight. Then the next flight came in and again the suitcase was no where in site. On the third flight after my arrival my suitcase finally arrived and I headed for my rental car and a somewhat desolate drive to Santa Fe. It was my first trip to "The City Different" so when I saw the city lights in the distance it was such a good feeling to know I would be arriving soon and finding my hotel. Santa Fe was alive with lights and the shops were open. Whew, what fun! I have been back to Santa Fe several times and each trip is a brand new experience and always welcoming. Thinking of Santa Fe has made for,
"A Painting Day".
