How many rains

The church of San Francisco de Asis was built in 1772. Even in its desert locations it has seen a lot of rains. And later that night, one more set of raindrops bathed the adobe walls.

Andy’s fiesta

Even though Andy’s claims to have just about anything you could need (Cocktails! Curios! Restaurant! Meeting Rooms! Drive-up Window!), I think the availability of all of those things is exaggerated. Which is, of course, my favorite thing about it.

Dennis Hopper was nearby

Our traveling companions were keen to find Dennis Hopper’s grave, which is not all that easily accomplished. But we stuck it out, and eventually located it.

In the meantime, there was this fantastic view of the mountains north of us.
