Good evening, Kitschies! Consider this a two-fer Tuesday post. :) The day ended up pretty good - I made a pretty good new recipe tonight (that I'll post later) and the hubs is off playing with his bestie, so I've had time to do some stuff. You know, important stuff. Like, paint my nails and do this post. LOL
Every October, Albuquerque is home to the International Balloon Fiesta. What is it? Hundreds of balloonists come together and strut their stuff. While it really is an awesome site (the pictures don't do it justice), it causes such a hassle for the locals, especially those of us who have to travel across the river to get in to the city. So many people come to this event, it causes a nightmare for traffic because the drivers don't pay attention to road and there's a lot of accidents...on top of the already extra heavy traffic. Tourists. Balloons. Already bad Albuquerque drivers. It's not a good mix. But, even with all the yuck, there is some awesome. All pictures are clickable.
There ya go. That's why I hate and love the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. It runs through this week and I'll be happy when they're gone. Maybe not the balloons, really, but the stupid drivers.
