I do recommend the train ride from Santa Fe to Lamy, NM. The food is an ad hoc affair, but very good New Mexican fare like green chile stew can be had from a vendor set up outside the Lamy depot. Beautiful countryside in the winter and the hippest train engineer ever.
It looks like the antibiotics kicked in. Santiago is in a much better mood. Even up for some shenanigans in the snow at the grandparent's house. We've still spent most of the day recuperating, but we're planning dinner out and hopefully a trip downtown to see the luminarias.
So, yes indeed, Santiago has an ear infection, but the MD suspects pneumonia, so we got to experience chest x-rays and life's rich pagaent at the only 24hr Walgreen's in the area. Ever wonder who hangs out at a drugstore on Christmas Day? Seriously odd folks, like the guy in the picture with the holiday themed wheelchair. Another patron overheard at the pick up counter: "who denied her valium? The doctor? The insurance company?" Ah, the humanity!
I think everybody is ready for a trip. I have just begun to decompress from work and might finally be in the mood for some relaxation. The Xmas eve crowds at the airport aren't bad at all. Feels like less than a typical weekday morning. Maybe this is one of those examples of the economic slowdown, but it sure is nice when you're traveling with a kiddo.
