Thanks for all your advice everyone! I have appreciated all your help.
I will be arriving into ABQ at 2pm tomorrow for a short trip and fly home Wednesday evening ... haven't really set out an itinerary yet, but I do have my Fodor's travel book.
I think I'm going to go to the zoo/botanical gardens, going to explore UNM, Central, Nob Hill .. and maybe drive to Santa Fe on Tuesday.
I look to sample the New Mexico fare (although I don't like spicy spicy
), and maybe visit Orchid Thai. I just plan on driving around and getting accustomed to the area -- my future home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have never been to NM, so this is going to be a fun adventure. My mom also thinks I should visit Taos, but I'm not sure ... I guess I don't really know what to do on my first visit. But I can scourer this place some more and get ideas.
What should I do on my first day? (Sunday)
I also forgot to add that I am taking the camera, so I will post pictures when I get back!
