Where I stayed
We set off from Sonora early doors yesterday and headed down highway 10 towards El Paso. Around 200 miles before El Paso we branched off and headed for Roswell. We were scheduled to arrive at 430pm local time however due to our class driving skills, we arrived at 230pm then found out that it was actually 130pm as we are now in mountain time!!
When we arrived we went for a walk to see what's about and went into the visitor centre where the nice little lady showed us everything you need to know about Roswell, she also insisted we had our photos taken with Bob, Harold and George, their 3 resident aliens, how funny! She also showed us on the map where they tested the atom bomb, this is called White Sands! Hills have eyes idea ddaaaadddyyy!
After this we headed to the (legendary) Roswell UFO museum where we spent two hours or so reading news paper clippings and listening to radio broadcasts etc! Did aliens land here July 4 1947!?? I sure hope so because they have built their entire town based upon it, even down to the street lamps. They are green with black alien eyes on them. It's quite a cute little town but also quite freaky little towns in one of those films.
We went to a Mexican restaurant near by which was recommended. Worst Mexican ever! And we're in New Mexico!! WTF. I've got a bone to pick with the USA, what is the deal with bringing out your main when you're half way through your starter! Happens everehere! So we ended up having an early night and a good sleep ready for our journey this morning to Tucson Arizona. Anyone seen Son's of anarchy? Well if you have, this is where they came from!! Biker gangs everywhere !! They wear the vests with their rank stiched into it!! So cool.
Onward to Tucson! Much love S&A x x
