Signs your friend is from New Mexico

Here are 24 differences between a normal friend and a New Mexican friend. 1. A normal friend will only have sriracha hot sauce in their fridge. A New Mexican friend will have about a dozen…

10 things to know about New Mexico

10 things to know about New Mexico There are so many things about New Mexico most people don’t know. And there are so many somewhat-cliché notions that just aren’t true at all — like how New Mexico has saguaro cacti (it doesn’t), that it’s actually a part of Mexico (it’s not), or that folks here are always getting abducted by aliens (okay, that one’s a maybe). In all seriousness, the Land of Enchantment may seem like it’s all about diverse cultures, world-class art, and landscapes fading away to shimmery horizons — and it is, but that’s just the tip of the chile pepper. Here are 10 things you’ll be glad you knew on your next trip to New Mexico….

Always having to wear sandals outside in summer because of goatheads. 4. Putting up farolitos or luminarias with our Christmas decorations. 5. Ordering food “Christmas” style. 6.

SATURDAY Morning Photo: TOURISM Santa Fe Santa Fe is an amalgamation of Native American, Spanish, and Anglo culture, so it only makes sense to dabble in each.

Humiliate yourself in New Mexico

Humiliate yourself in New Mexico We get it. You’re new here, or you’re just visiting from out of state. You probably don’t know how we do things around here in good old New Mexico. So if you happen to make any of these mistakes and humiliate yourself, don’t worry, we won’t judge you (too hard). 1. Order the hottest level of chile if you’re an out-of-towner. We know you’re probably trying to show off, but you’re only hurting yourself. You’ll be begging for some milk in about five minutes. 2. Mispronounce Spanish words. It’s Cerrillos, not Cer-ILL-os. Pojoaque, not Po-JA-q. Tortillas, not Tor-till-as. It’s basic Spanish, not rocket science. 3. Use your indicator. The turn indicator is a foreign…

New Mexico…like a celebrity

New Mexico…like a celebrity Celebrities lead pretty enviable lives. Constant parties, trips all over the world, red-carpet galas in the latest fashions, private spa retreats…who wouldn’t want to live like that, at least for a while? Riiiight.
