New Mexico, Albuquerque Guide (B): Adventure in Albuquerque

Adventure in Albuquerque
I don’t even know where to start. Our adventure in Albuquerque began well before we ever crossed the Colorado/New Mexico border. After Kristin and I piled our gear in my Outback Thursday afternoon in Denver’s southern suburbs, we joined the masses in traffic. Denver is the only city I know where rush hour seems to be finished by 5:30 instead of beginning. Torrential rains didn’t help matters either as we skidded along the pavement more than once. I suppose the best way to start and end a good, old-fashioned road trip is with a song of the day. When I drove around the USA for a year, I always posted a song of the day, and this trek reminded me a bit of those days. Sometimes I wish I still had my Eurovan.

So in honor of awesome roadtrips, my songs of the day for Thursday and Sunday plus a bonus track for all the rain we had to endure are: “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye (this song played twice in twenty minutes as we flipped the channels), “Animals” by Maroon 5 (I think this song played twice an hour…luckily Maroon 5 is one of my favorite bands), and “You Make Me Wanna” by Usher (I wanted to see him when I was in NYC last month but missed him, so it was a nice oldie but goodie I listened to at the end of the day when I broke out my ipod). I finally switched to Verizon and had to get a new phone, so my music isn’t hooked up to my car yet, thus the old ipod and old playlist. http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/gotye/somebodythatiusedtoknow.html, ......
