"Ultima came to stay with us the summer I was almost seven. When she came the beauty of the llano unfolded before my eyes, and the gurgling waters of the river sang to the hum of the turning earth. The magical time of childhood stood still, and the pulse of the living earth pressed its mystery into my living blood."

Chill Sunday with the catholics

Today we Checked out the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Arroyo Seco for our Sunday Service. Many of our group had never been to a catholic church which was a great experience for us. The service was an authentic mix of spanish and english with some modern and traditional elements mixed in. It was also notable that they were about to celebrate their 175th anniversary of their old church called La Santisima Trinidad.

We also checked out the best New Mexican food in all of Taos. It was called Orlando’s and everything from their festive paint job to their authentic menu made all of our mouths salivate as we took our seats. The guacamole and salsa were great, and most of our crew ate the Los Calores which was three different corn tortillas with red and green chile and cheese on them. It definitely lived up to its name and came out and was the closest thing to an edible rainbow as I have ever seen. Everything right down to the posole (Linda’s translation: corn on steroids, which was 100% accurate) was scrumptious.

After dinner we took some hilarious photos (seriously, check out Christian’s face).

Jocelyn and Christian also decided to try their hand at some culinary arts with some chocolate chip oatmeal cookies which we all were happy to partake in.
