SanFelipe de Neri Church: Old town
One of the requests the kids had of America was going to a park. We found this park right next to Old town which is in walking distance of our house. We had a lovely time there and the kids made friends with some local kids. It was good to spend some time doing a 'normal' eveyday activity and having a break from all the sightseeing.
Old Town follows the traditional Spanish pattern of a central plaza and church surrounded by homes and businesses. There are restaurants and shops and museums. Shopping here is delightful and we found many native indian handicrafts and art work.
We dropped Steve off at the Centre for Action and Contemplation at lunch time. He was going to head off to his leaders forum called Solarize. He should have a great time. Jo had to drive on the 'wrong side of the road' for the first time and this went well. No accidents and no-one beeped at her. Jo and the kids are planning to spend the rest of Friday and Saturday just relaxing and catching up on sleep. On Sunday they plan to go to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science before picking Steve up at 2 pm.
