We spent a few unforgettable days in Sante Fe, New Mexico. The roads of Santa Fe uniquely portrayed the Native American cultures combined with Spanish style living. Pueblo architecture was breathtaking! I’ve not seen anything like this in my life. The earthy tones, flat roofs, square windows, wooden beams, and the courtyards were just a few that I could not take my eyes off. This unique architecture was surrounded by majestic mountains of all sizes. The drive down to Sante Fe from Albuquerque was memorable too!
The word “Pueblo” in Spanish is village or town. Pueblo Indians consist of several Native American tribes who live in the Southwest US. Roads of Santa Fe were filled with galleries and roadside shops selling jewelry, arts and crafts, pottery, clothing, and more. We bought a few exclusive items, but wish had more time to shop! I found their work vibrant and intricate in design. Pueblo Indians are highly talented and warm. We enjoyed interacting with the shop owners, and it was fun to meet artists whose family have been living here since the late 1800’s.
