Santa Fe...

is calling my name. It has been for almost two years but NOW at this very moment, I REALLY want to visit. As a person who has not traveled much-neither domestically nor internationally-I would love to take a trip to Santa Fe this summer or maybe early fall. I was just browsing this forum and took particular interest in the Santa Fe forum. There is really great advice here not to mention the reviews. Currently, I'm interested in Native American culture. I would love to be immersed in the beauty of Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. I have not done in-depth research but just reading some of the topics on this forum have been very helpful. I have an *online acquaintance* that lives in New Mexico (I won't say what city since I consider it a violation of privacy) and I think it would be great if we met in person. Now, I would be traveling alone. Which doesn't bother me much but it's better to be safe than sorry. Once I find out more, I might ask a few questions in hopes that some of the *natives* will answer. For now, I just want to say that I hope to visit your beautiful city/town soon!

Zozobra also marks the end of the "Fiesta" which goes on for a few days before and is a very colorful celebration.

When I lived in SF full time a few years ago, I was amazed how the locals, and esp. the native Hispanic locals are into "Fiesta". It was less an "Anglo" celebration than one that has involved Hispanic families for many generations (Fiesta Queen, court, mariachis). It really represented their heritage and their roots that go back to medieval Spain.

Early Sept. also coincides with chile roasting season, so it's a great time to go. Enjoy!

NYNM, thanks for the additional info. I didn't know about the chile roasting! I love Latin/Hispanic culture too...decisions, decisions. I'm still saving...so I will have to see how much savings I accumulate before I plan the trip. :-/

Haven't updated this post in a while...I'd like to visit before fall is in full swing but it seems like I might have to hold off until...
