Why I Choose To Live In New Mexico (And LOVE it!)

Albuquerque gets a bad rap.  Maybe it's Bugs Bunny's fault, or maybe its the fact that the TV show COPS set up permanent camp here in the 90s but truly and honestly, I live in Albuquerque and I choose to stay here because it's an amazing town.  Let's ditch a few stereotypes first, however.  No, we do not wear sombreros and it's not all desert.  We get snow, we have mountains...and lakes....and rivers...and forests!  We also are as high (and in Santa Fe, higher) than Denver, the mile high city.  They just took all the credit....more

But then, in the silence, you know,......there is never a dull moment.  A man cycled by, "Are you the race official?" he asked Cece. "No," she replied, What race?"   "There is a triathlon along this course and they will be coming by at any moment.  I thought you were a race official."  ...more
