My wife and I have been living in Albuquerque for the past 18 months.
- My wife was transferred to Albuquerque, so we sold our house and moved across the country.
When we first arrived in Albuquerque, we were surprised by the size of the city. We came from a city with a population of 18000 and Albuquerque was ten times that size. There are a lot of things that are different about Albuquerque. For instance, New Mexico has legal cannabis. There are legal cannabis dispensaries on every street corner and Albuquerque. Sometimes you walk by the cannabis dispensaries and you can smell the weed a block away. It’s one of the things I dislike most about living in Albuquerque. I don’t use cannabis, so it is just a nuisance to me. Last weekend, my wife and I decided to drive to White Sands, New Mexico for the first time. We took our tent and camped in the National Park. It was a three and a half hour drive from White Sands to Albuquerque, but my wife and I didn’t mind making the extra long trip. We stayed 2 nights at the park and we drove home on Sunday afternoon. Even though it was a three and a half hour trip, we managed to have a lot of fun on the drive-by listening to old CDs from the time we got together. We sang the lyrics out loud with the windows rolled down. When we finally arrived back home, I was wishing we would have stayed another day. There were so many things we didn’t get to see one weekend.
