One of the small churches that we see in Taos.
We have been out and about seing the local sights. The chapels, churches and cathedrals here in Taos vary in size, but most are quite small. They are beautiful inside and quite ornate. I particulary enjoy the wood carving on the doors. Today we visited a church in Rio de Taos and watched a 20 minute film on the making of adobe bricks and adobe stucco. Very interesting.
We also visited the site of the Taos Pueblos where people have been inhabiting the site for over 1000 years. A young Native American girl took us on a guided tour making sure that we knew the facts as told by here people and not what the US Government has told us or our history school books portrayed. It was very interesting and educational.
Our weather continues to be beautiful each day. We have enjoyed a lot of green chilies and superb landscape. We know we will come back here. Very relaxing.
I will finish this blog off by sharing photos of the small churches we have visited along with photos of the Taos Pueblo. What an educational trip this has been. So much rich culture and history here. I

remind you once again, that these cities are the oldest in our nation and had already been settled and building by the time the settlers arrived in Jamestown.
Our friends Ann and Bob have hit the road on their return trip to Austin, Texas. We will start our journey back in the morning.
Thanks for traveling along with us.
