The other day Mama and Papa did something awful. They went to Old Town Albuquerque without me. Here is what happened.
We woke up and went outside per usual. Then it was pretty clear we were going somewhere. Boy was I excited! They fed me and then I heard the word kennel.
I figured Papa just misspoke so I headed over to the door to await my collar. Then, he said it again… They were leaving me alone, again. As always it felt like they were gone forever, or maybe like they never left I don’t remember which…
Anyways, it turns out they were going to look at shops in Historic Old Town Albuquerque and didn’t want to leave me outside by myself the whole time in the heat. They told me all about it though. Apparently, according to Mama, it was very much like being in the Original Mexico.
They told me that when they first got there there was a Museum that had statues of large animals and people outside called the Albuquerque Museum, a fitting name.
Apparently the place looked pretty good. Just to the right of this restaurant there was a small house.
There are small hallways throughout Old Town Albuquerque. Although there are streets a lot of the time you are navigating smaller areas and the building are all connected.
I am told that the there is a big church there unfortunately Papa managed to not get a picture of the place. It is called the San Felipe de Neri Church. It has been there for over 300 years! It is a large building for the area and I’m told is a cool building.
Surrounding the plaza are many shops. Many of which seem to sell the same thing as the person next to them; at different prices even mind you. Even within the same building.
All of these shops have hot sauce it seems but one had more than the others. Blowing the competition out of the water. According to the labels on some of these they come from the pits of hell and quite a few donkeys…
Once Mama and Papa finally showed back up from their trip to Old Town Albuquerque they had food with them from El Modelo, a local favorite here with great food since 1929. The food smelled amazing and Mama and Papa assured me it was and then gave me my kibble.
Now I’m just happy they are home and we can finally take a nap.
