Santa Fe dogs get treated really well

23 11 2014

There are dogs everywhere in Santa Fe. Not street dogs — well cared for dogs, on leashes, with owners in tow, and, if it’s cold, with little jackets on. Many are allowed in shops and galleries, and some places cater to dogs (see photo below).

Surprisingly, there’s no dog poop on the sidewalks! Which I guess is why the city has no problems with dogs in stores.

Pensive…

While going through my photos from the trip, I spotted this one that I didn’t realise I’d taken. I was trying to capture the landscape outside the bus, and in the process I captured the reflection of me looking outside the window.
