Santa Fe with Mom

 The first weekend of November my Ma and I went to Santa Fe for a little mother-daughter vaca. We stayed in a fun (but weird) hotel in the heart of the city. Everything was within walking distance so we got lots of fresh air and exercise. Along the way we feasted on yummy eats and beautiful Southwestern US views. There may or may not have been some serious shopping as well, but I’m not telling. Here is a pictorial synopsis of the trip:

First meal was at Anasazi, I had the duck:

And I believe my Mom had a mole chicken dish:

There were many interesting sculptures around town, here's my Mom with some fish:

My Mom with a gnarly tree she liked:

 Lunch at Rooftop Pizzeria  the patio overlooked the town, great rest stop int he middle of the day and delicious pizza! We had the No3: Grilled Chicken, Green Chile, Cotija and Asadero Cheeses and Toasted Pinon with Alfredo Sauce on Blue Corn Crust.

For dinner that night we went to Il Piattio, I had the River Trout (very good and well dressed):

For dessert I had pumpkin cheesecake (disappointing, no spice!):

We decided to take a drive to Taos one day and were treated with beautiful scenery along the way:

That evening we went to the recommended La Boca for dinner. We shared a few tapas and some paella (not my favorite paella ever, the chorizo flavor really permeated the dish and I don't really like chorizo)

Random turtle sculpture!

The main reason for our trip, Zuni store, Keshi:

 Buying Zuni Fetishes!

 Had so much fun, where we goin next, Mom?!
