Sad that I am not there.
Thank you all who post here. I come here to satisfy my longing for New Mexico and Albuquerque in particular. Your photos, stories and announcements bring me joy and hope.
Hope that one day I will once again live in Albuquerque. Hope that one day I will take for granted the things I miss so very much. I miss shopping at La Montanita and the Alpine Sausage Kitchen. I miss the bagels at Fred’s (I know, its gone forever). I miss the smell of chile roasting behind the Frontier in the fall and the pinion burning in the winter. I miss the Elm trees in Hyder Park and neon on Central Ave. I miss the people who live there and love Albuquerque too.
I’ll be back someday. Until then, I’ll have to get my Albuquerque “fix” here.
