Good Friday (continued/part 2). 04/02/10 in Albuquerque, NM.

There is a Passion Play being performed, and a mass in another local church – the entire town is packed in this religious festival. I just absorb it all.

There are a couple oddities I can not resist documenting for posterity. Many people selling their wares lends a carnival atmosphere, undermining the pious occasion.

Isaiah and I head out at noon for Albuquerque to avoid the traffic that is entering Chimayo. The road is thick with cars coming and going, thick with people walking. It takes us an hour to travel 10 miles, the cars coming in are standing still.

We arrive in Albuquerque after 2 and a half hours: plenty of time for a short rest and then we are all off to the Poema CD Release Party (friends of Brian) where the girls’  father, Dell, proudly celebrates their signing with Tooth and Nail Records.

We arrive during the girls’ sound-check, visit, eat, and watch their video release, but leave before the performance…. head to Flying Star for milk shakes and tea.

Edit photos from Chimayo, write the blog – too tired to finish, I sleep.

My first full day in New Mexico is over.
