Santa Fe was beautiful but touristy. I would recommend everyone to see the town and it’s museums, but eat light / supermarket food and buy sovernirs elsewhere !
An overnight greyhound got me into Denver, which paralleled with Atlanta in that it was a nice enough place, but not much fun. I did want to travel to see Idaho springs or other nearby sights, but my desire to keep moving forward took me today into Boulder, which from first sights seems beautiful and scenic. I think some long mountain treks await me, and hopefully some good drinking !
In other news I have started to read about Russian / St Petersburg history instead of just reading trashy novels. Some sort of need to learn stuff apparently… I’ll see how long this academic streak lasts !
