A Surprise From New Mexico

These wonderful cards arrived today from Sam-Quito in the USA who I think forgot he’d already sent me a card. Anyway, I really really love them. On the first card (which shows a night view of Albuquerque), he tells me a little about his visit to Guernsey and how he loved our Post Office (they sell a LOT of stamps there). The second shows a fantastic map of trade routes used by the Spanish between Mexico and the USA during the colonial period. Sam-Quito tells me El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro is the oldest and longest European road in North America running from Mexico City to San Gabriel in California, it has recently been made a UNESCO site. Fascinating!
