She in da house!
After a slightly bumpy intro with late planes and cars (snore) Catherine greeted Marlies at Unsettled Gallery and Studio with afternoon drinks and a tour of the exhibition.
Then there were mandatory Margaritas at the Double Eagle in Mesilla with DS as our designated chauffeur!
Despite lack of sleep and acclimatization in play I dragged the gal out into the pre dawn (no dragging necessary really) to see the streets and cactus desert at first light. As predicted Marlies saw things I’d never seen before despite having walked it almost every day for 3 weeks.
And we saw things not there before. Halloween emerges.
And we cruised town in our zippy red car to give Marlies a tour of Mesquite St, Main Street and the art supply shop (yum), a computer repair shop (sniff) and fell exhausted Into a cantina for lunch.
