I had seen another thread based on this topic with Minnesota, so I'm curious how much is known about the state of New Mexico and any cities or towns within it (ex: Albuquerque, Santa Fe). Even within the US it's under the radar. What is known about it internationally and does it get confused with old Mexico?

Again, not one of the most famous states. I'd say UFO's: Roswell, New Mexico is pretty famous. Also for Los Alamos where they tested nukes. The show 'Breaking Bad' is set in ABQ. I've been myself, cool state, I dig Santa Fe as well, interesting adobe architecture!

No idea. When I think of it I just imagine a big desert with a straight road going through it.

Not much of an idea. I know Roswell, Alberquerque, Santa Fe, and that it's high up and fairly arid. Presumably it borders Mexico and now has a lot of Hispanic people. Seems like a NASCAR sort of place maybe?

New Mexico is cleaner than Old Mexico ?
