Half the country do not know its a state and 90% of Canadians think that.

As for poverty, my ex home Seattle is known for being rich but actually feels quite poor when you see the tons of homeless camps and tents everywhere. I am thrilled I am gone.

Chili's.... that is adequate.
Chile Ristras of New Mexico
https://www.nps.gov/petr/learn/historyculture/chile.htm
New Mexicans consume more Chile per capita than any other group in the United States

You now have a very well known ex-Governor for his excellent international knowledge!
But he can't be as damaging as the front runners, but?... maybe? Hope not., can't even imagine that is possible!

Maybe it is best to remain less famous, NM is a great place to live and explore. I find something new each time I pass through.

I agree, StealthRabbit. Enjoyed my 2 years living in Alamogordo and could return to NM one day.


Microsoft


Funny, I've always known Microsoft to be a Washington state entity.

Albuquerque, New Mexico: Historic Microsoft Headquarters

A plaque on a rock stands in front of the building where Paul Allen and Bill Gates got their start on April 4, 1975. The plaque has been stolen repeatedly. Address: 115 California St. NE, Albuquerque, NM Directions: On the southwest corner of Linn Ave. NE and California St. NE. I-40 exit 162. Drive south on Louisiana Ave. around 1.5 miles, past the State Fairgrounds on the right. Turn right onto Central Ave. (old Route 66), then make the next right, past the Fairgrounds, onto California St. The rock and plaque will be one block north, on the left.

I think of perfect weather with 4 seasons, the beautiful sunsets and sun rises and yes the balloon festival, but I don't think this is what the average person, who hasn't visited would know. Of course we can't forget Hatch Chilis. Mountains and Native Americans also come to mind.

Should be known for Taos Pueblo, continuously occupied for a 1000 years. The current country land was available but they picked this location for its beauty and incredible weather.
