Another work trip. This time to Albuquerque, Taos and Carlsbad, New Mexico.
Standard Diner. It was a perfect place for lunch.
The Flying Star Cafe, which is another restaurant that features local foods, (which is my favorite type of restaurant).
I know this post is going to make it look like we did nothing, but that is not true. We just made really good use of our pockets of down time. Another lunch that we had was at Farina Pizzeria. I had a fire oven pizza with goat cheese on it. It was amazing. We also spent working in a variety of places. That afternoon, I spent some time getting caught up on work emails from this "dirty hipster" coffee shop called Winning near the University of New Mexico (so I was probably the oldest person in there). The coffee was excellent. That evening, we met our colleague, who lives and works in Albuquerque, in Old Town for supper.
On Friday (a week ago) we headed up for a meeting in Taos (which is actually the picture below) but not before stopping at the car wash that was used in the show Breaking Bad. (Our hosts' home was actually very close to the location). The place were we stayed the night before we flew home was also near another location where they shot Jesse and Jane's home. Yep. It was amazing.

It was a good trip overall. (That fresh lemonade is from The Cube in ABQ. awesome!) But I am so happy to be home. And so grateful that the prairie is not the same as the dessert.
