We drove down to Old Town Albuquerque on Black Friday. Named because it is the biggest shopping day of the year, we found the touristy Old town area to be quite calm and tame. Seems all the locals head to the mall. We found some good deals, or rather, Sraddha found some beautiful earrings, and almost purchased a real Navaho rug. Probably would have but didn't have the measurements for where we would put it. Just as well.

Then today (Saturday) we returned to the area near the botanical gardens and rode the bosque trail a second time for 18 miles, with the last 8 miles against a head wind. Satisfied by our workout, we journeyed back to have more tamales.
