By the time you read this, Luna and I will be in Albuquerque, New Mexico, spending a few days running errands and exploring the city before Chad joins us and we head north into the mountains of Colorado.
Originally, we were planning on spending more time in Mexico, but after a month or so, we were ready to move on. I was having some major stomach problems. We were both pretty tired of the nighttime construction noise that started up during our second month. And, honestly, Mexico just isn’t our place.
Which isn’t to say anything bad about the Riviera. It just didn’t have a lot of the things we personally value. Like easily accessible organic foods. Or clean streets.
At the end of the day, Europe is where our hearts are. But since we need to be in the North American time zone for some current projects, we decided to settle for some time in the snowy Colorado mountains.
