"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."
Bless Me Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya

This weekend was nice and relaxing. We all got to catch up on some serious email and internet stuff because, gasp, we have not had internet where we are staying!
On Saturday we checked out some openings. One was Pablo Florez, the man who makes these wonderful crosses, who is a favorite artist of our hosts Linda & Scott. We also checked out the Doc Martin bar and had some dinner. This is where we ran into Ed Sandoval (Jan 14) who as just as charming as ever.

On Sunday some of our class was courageous and got up at the crack of dawn and went to San Francisco de Asisi which is one of the most photographed churches in the United States. Others of us went to the same church as last Sunday. Afterwards, we went into town and had some free time which some of us spent at the Mabel Dodge Luahn House.
