El Rancho De Las Golondrinas!!

El Rancho de las Golondrinas (The Ranch of the Swallows) is a ranch that is a few miles south of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The ranch was founded in 1710 by Miguel Vega y Coca. The "living history" recreates 18th Century Spanish colonial ranch life. Guides are dressed in period clothing and demonstrate how people lived, for example grinding their own flour, making their own tools, shoeing horses; etc. We were very lucky to be there on June 8, one of the festival days...

He looks like someone I know!!

Can you see "me" in the glass jugs?!?!
