Capturing a sunset in Santa Fe is hard. The sunset is constantly changing. Between one shot and glancing at the screen, the scene has changed already. It maybe the placement of the clouds, the lighting or the colors. Honestly, the best way to appreciate the sunset in Santa Fe is with a drink in one hand and sitting in a chair. It's no wonder so many artists get inspiration in this landscape. Can't wait for my next visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico!

Chimayo was very quiet, not so many people in the area. But, of the people that we did meet they were very friendly. One man in particular was very....flirty. lol He was a very good salesman. I have to say his chili was pretty good!
If you have time try to make a trip to Chimayo. Buy some chili and visit the chapels!

This Chapel is special for many reasons. For it's historical significance and for it's healing powers. From this chapel you can take home some dirt that will help to heal people. There is a room lined with crutches that people no longer needed after touching the dirt (which is surprisingly fine and smooth) and saying their prayer. Even if that isn't your thing you should visit this chapel. Just for old it is and the details inside. (Photos are not allowed inside the chapel)

Everyone has a prayer, wish or whatever you call it, everyone has one. Maybe it's for yourself, maybe it's for a family member, but everyone one of us is hoping that ours is the one answered.
I hope most of these prayers were answered.

My friends were kind enough to take me to a little town called Chimayo. This town sells some amazing chili! I bought some and brought it home with me. I haven't tried making the chili "sauce" (apparently, it is blasphemous to say chili sauce. It looks like a sauce, has the consistency of a sauce, but we must NOT call it a sauce, or forever be labeled a tourist. Thank you Cynthia for saving me from that embarrassment. lol) All I can say is the chili in Santa Fe is delicious and make sure to order Christmas (red and green chili) with every meal you can!
This little town also had a few chapels. It is a very quiet town, but people mainly come here for the chili and maybe for some healing.
