I was stopped for speeding the other day, just beyond the Santa Fe Opera area. Speed limits in New Mexico change radically: 35, then 45, then 55, then 45, then 60, then 45…yikes. Lost in all those changes, my mind was stuck, I suppose, with the 75 mph limit on Interstate 25 (there’s no 75 mph in California, that I know of!). So I didn’t notice I was doing 76 mph in a 65 mph zone, I only noticed pedestrians walking along the side of the Interstate, something illegal in California. The policeman who stopped me understood, and issued me only a warning. He explained they were patrolling the area heavier than usual since it was Holy Thursday and those pedestrians were on a religious walk. I wondered if their destination was Chimayo, but didn’t ask, I only thanked the officer and got the heck out of there. Then I realized our rental car had cruise control.
Dinner tonight at Milagro, back to Los Angeles tomorrow.
