Where I stayed
Completely infuriated after complaining and questioning the Greyhound staff for hours we wandered out into the bitter cold morning air at about 7am
We were about 4th in line, this was not good. We were right to worry, as we found out by pestering the staff that the bus coming was possibly full and there would be a chance that we would not get on the bus again. The bus did not arrive on time, and the crowd (many we recognised from the night before) grew restless. I asked the shift manager what was going on, he told me that there were only 6 spots on the bus that was running late. He said that we would get on it as he planned to get his security stuff to bundle us past the queue! I was in shock at this proposed plan, that only seemed to be in place as we were the most vociferous passengers in our complaints. As I returned to the queue and relayed the news to Kristina the bus arrived, the crowd surged to the door, and the security staff appeared shouting at Kristina & I to push through to the front. We got through and were guided onto the near full bus, we made it
We arrived in Roswell very tired and very angry with the whole Greyhound experience. But we decided to email our complaints to them, and forget about it for now and move on. Ok, so Roswell is shite. We need not have gone to all the trouble to get there. We thought it would be a fun, tounge in cheeck kind of place, with lots of weird and funny places cashing in on the alien abduction saga. Well the town is mostly dominated by the military acadamey, with a few UFO themed shops and one incredibly lame UFO museum. The locals are pretty rednecky, and there is not really a tourist based community there.
The UFO museum is so so lame it is actually quite funny. But it is not fair that you should have to pay for the poor qulaity of the exhibts. It is not that the subject matter is shoddy, which it is, but more that it is all displayed so badly that is the problem. It is reminicent of a school project display, except worse. We had fun though, we laughed a lot and made the most of this weird little New Mexico outpost.
But please, don't bother with Roswell. Oh,and Alberberquerque is a swear word to Kristina & I now. So please don't say the "A" word around us!
