Day eight is a rest day in Santa Fe. Today is the day we get to sleep in, getting up whenever we feel like it and having time to go explore Santa Fe on our own. After waking up my human, Gary (he’s a hard guy to wake up, almost like me hibernating in the winter) we headed off for a nice light breakfast of coffee and croissants. The rest of the group slowly wanders out of the hotel and explores this beautiful city in thier own way.
There’s plenty of things to do and go see in Santa Fe, shopping, sightseeing, dozens on art galleries, all kinds of resturaunts and cafes. Most popular however is the Plaza in old town, with it’s many art galleries and shops it’s a great place to spend the day. One of the most popular attractions in the plaza is buyng handmade Native American Navajo jewelry. Many of the artisans set up shop in front of the palace of the govenors to sell thier handiwork, beautiful jewelry, primarialy made of silver,turquoise,and tiger’s–eye. The plaza as also the place to find handmade rugs, woven in the local pueblos, and depict typical scenes and symbols of the native people.
So do you feel lucky punk?…well…do ya?
What do you mean we're out of ammo?
After shooting until we’ve gotten our fill, it’s back to the hotel to clean up and relax until time for dinner at another of Santa Fe’s fine resturaunts. After dinner we go check out some of the local drinking establishments for a nightcap before we turn in for a good night’s rest before we hit the road the next morning.
