But we had a nice morning in Albuquerque, on our way out of town. It started with trying to find a Quiznos for lunch--after we went a mile or two out of the way trying to get un-lost, we realized it probably didn't exist. Then we changed gears to find a Subway, and it led us to a little strip mall with a sign for Subway, but no visible Subway. However, as serendipity would have it, we stumbled across a Souper Salad that opened in ten minutes. Therefore, we spent not just the next ten minutes, but the next half hour in the nearby Figments Tea Shoppe and Gallery. The shop sported a number of tea-related gifts and boutique-type novelties, without the fancy boutique expense. It didn't take long for us to decide to do a bit of very early Christmas shopping. At this rate, we'll have gifts for everyone by mid-October!
So after our jaunt into the tea shoppe, we ate at Souper Salad. We've seen them before, but never tried one. In short, we loved it. They had a seemingly endless buffet of salad makings, and a good selection of soups. If those aren't enough, there are a number of other lunch items--lasagna, nachos, tacos... fantastic.
And that was our farewell to New Mexico. Pretty part of the country. Now we're on to our weekend in Texas, before our roadtrip up to the Northeast.
