Taos, NM

We made the drive to Taos this morning. It took us about two hours as we were in no hurry and the scenery was spectacular. We passed many small Pueblos and an almost equal number of casinos. It makes you wonder just how much gambling money there is to share in this State but all of them seem prosperous.

Taos is what Santa Fe probably was twenty years ago. It is a small town surrounding the central plaza with many shops selling everything from authentic Navajo rugs to designer clothing. The architecture is Adobe. Everything is earth tone in colour and of low visual impact including WalMart and McDonalds. There are no bright colours or slashing neon lights. It is very inviting and would be a great place to live. Real Estate is also reasonably priced, maybe as a result of the economic downturn but whatever the reason, it would be a nice time to jump into the market in Taos!

We found a Navajo Rug shop and bought a small rug. It was just about the cheapest rug in the place! Here is the shop:

  1. Gee, I don't catch your blog for a couple of days and you have all kinds of excitement. Glad you are getting your rv fixed. I'd want that tranny fluid changed too! Never heard of running the generator to charge the engine battery but I guess it might work ok. It's a neat trick. Guess I would try it before paying a $450 tow bill! Good luck getting home in time.
