Sante Fe Recommodations

Garrett Inn - Sante Fe, New Mexico.   A small travel lodge which is good for an
overnight stay as it is located near the historical Sante Fe Plaza (walking distance),  
The Loretto Inn is just a half a block away, much nicer but far more expensive.

                                          PACKING A SUITCASE

I usually travel light.   Here is how I pack my suitcase,   
To save space, roll clothes into tiny   sausages, and
only fold clothing, like suit jackets, that do not readily
roll. Stuff socks and any small items into the various
crevices around larger items. Put a second pair of
shoes (you will be wearing the first pair) into a plastic
bag (or put each shoe into its own plastic bag) and
pack near the top of the clothing. Shoes with heels
generally do well in the corners.  I stuff the shoes with
socks, under garments, breakable bottles, etc.  I only
take the most essential toiletries and leave a lot of my
makeup at home.    At the end of your trip,  check out
what you didn't use and eliminate it the next time.   You
will be surprised on how many clothes you didn't wear
and how much makeup and jewelry you didn't use.     
Happy Vacationing!

wonderful meal at this place, I had Chicken Marsala and the sauce
here was to die for!!!!   The Greek Salad was great and it is a
restaurant to recommend.

Vinz - Escondido, California.   Serving great wine and a good place for
people watching!  They have entertainment on the weekends.  Check the schedule first.
