Albuquerque balloons and Culture

10/6 1st I would like to wish my beautiful and wonderful Sister a GREAT Happy Birthday!!!!

At 7 am this morning I was sleeping but my husband was up. He happen to look out the window and there was the balloons overhead.

By now I am awake and David tells me too look out the front window of the RV. Bam!! I’m running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. I don’t know what to do 1st get dressed or grab my camera and put on the telephoto lens….ahhhhh.

It was great to see some of the dances from old Mexico all the way to New Mexico.

We departed at 1:30 pm for the Pueblo Cultural center which is owned and operated by the 19 tribes of New Mexico. There is a museum, live dancing and of course authentic Native American wares for sale.

We left the museum around 4PM for the RV park. The the rest of the day and evening nothing was planned. It was great to chill outside watching football and having a adult beverage.
