Highlights: Palace of the Governors
A change of plans meant we got a chance to explore Santa Fe. Santa Fe is the oldest surviving town in the USA that was part of Mexico originally. We visited the Palace of the Governors that was for a long time the longest serving centre of Government in the USA used for. The mid 1650s until 1906 it currently houses a Musuem covering its and New Mexico’s history. We also visited San Miguel Mission the oldest in the USA and the oldest house. The most fascinating thing about Santa Fe was that for a short time the Native American Indians expelled the Spanish and Mexicans and took over the town and surrounding area. This is the only time Native Americans successfully took back their land via force. Our bus trip to Flagstaff left at 8.05 pm scheduled to arrive at 5.15 am.
