We are stuck here waiting for hideously overpriced Cummins repairs, and while we wait we're trying to find something redeeming about this town. So far a two-block plaza area with historical adobe buildings and the Dia de los Muertos parade have been the high point.

Sketchy characters abound.
One of the touristy things to do is the "Breaking Bad" tour. Great... exteriors from a show about cooking meth... Pass (although I would like to throw a pizza on the roof).
Maybe we haven't found the heart of Albuquerque, but not for lack of trying. For my California friends - it's like Riverside without the charm. The balloon festival is a big deal, but we missed it by a week. Can't wait to get back on the road.
