El Pinto

We have been having a good time hanging out with our friends Ron and Kathy, who were parked next to us at our campground in Albuquerque.  Last night Kathy took Bob and me to one of her favorite Mexican restaurants in the city, El Pinto. Unfortunately, Ron was unable to join us, but we had a great time with Kathy, who regaled us with stories of Albuquerque and the people who live here.

El Pinto is a beautiful building with huge water features in the front lobby. The place was hopping when we got there at about 7:00, but we were able to snag a table in the bar without waiting. I tried sopapillas stuffed with chicken, with "Christmas" chills (a bowl of red and a bowl of green chili sauce on the side.) Oh my, was it ever good! What a great evening!

This morning we headed to Amarillo, Texas, and crossed into another time zone. We are now on Central time. I was just getting used to Mountain time! Our trip was completely uneventful--the best kind of trip. We'll be staying here for two nights, just long enough to visit Palo Duro Canyon tomorrow before we head to Oklahoma.
