Santa Fe Style - Hiking the Hills

Madrid, NM


  1. Madrid!!! 2-1/2 hours on the express train and you can be here. Oh, wait. That looks like a different Madrid? (I guess NM doesn't stand for "Near Mitchell.")

  2. Definitely a different Madrid. They pronounce it Mad - drid, like in the word mad. But then Camino de las Crucitas and other streets and place names are pronounced as in in Spanish. Go figure.

  3. There's a town in western New York State, near Rochester, called Chili... and pronounced with long "i's so both syllables rhyme with the English word "Lie."

    I understand that when you're in Mad-drid, if you close your eyes and click your heels together three times while saying it the Spanish way, when you open your eyes, you'll be here.

  4. If you click your heels together here, you're probably wearing cowboy boots and you'll cause a stampede.
