Re: O/T New Mexico Peoples

i went there for spring break to visit my friend.

it's dry. there are a million stores. there's an excellent candy store called the candy lady that sells alsorts in old town. i ate about twelve pounds of licorice in a week.

there are huuuge mountains (the sandias).

it took me awhile to get used to the no trees/dirt/sandstorms thing.

i don't know if i would want to live there (i'm too new england). but it's not a bad place.

Re: O/T New Mexico Peoples

hmmm, Albuquerque is pretty trashy. I lived in Santa Fe for about a year and definitely did not enjoy it. there were lots of unhappy people.

Re: O/T New Mexico Peoples

thats the kind of input i want, Im juggling two different options

North Carolina vs. New mexico right now im kinda starting to lean north carolina

Re: O/T New Mexico Peoples

I've Lived in Santa Fe a long time now. I don't make it to ABQ as much as I'd like, but I think I saw some posts from some guys calling themselves the "Members Only" moped crew.

Mopeds are rare. Rare, Like, they almost don't exist. I've got a couple of people psyched on the idea... but they haven't found a bike yet.

THE GOOD:

Some of the best fucking sunsets ever. A lot of people say they live here because of them.

Great weather (long spring and fall make for sweet summers)

AWESOME food (I've missed green chile soooo much when I've been gone more than a month)

Lots of local culture (which is pretty bizarre during fiestas, we burn a 60ft. tall efigy named Zozobra, for real)

Not too hard to find work if you do restaurant stuff

THE BAD:

THE TOURISTS (comprised of vacationing grandparents mostly - nothing against Gramps, but you try being 23 and living in a retirement community)

No good bars (not really anyway)

City / Social Politics (The social scene here is SMALL. Six months here and you'll know everyone)

Don't get me wrong, I love it here, just being honest.
