Well folks, ever since we were near area 51 a few years back we have had this little alien following us. At some point Flo from progressive joined in to protect him. His name is Liíll Umberto and he has two bothers Liíll Umberto and his other brother Liíll Umberto. We took the Amtrak train to Albuquerque and started a journey of the state of New Mexico and our first place to visit was Roswell, with the purpose of visiting the Alien Museum.

There are a few shots on this page showing all the businesses playing up the Alien theme. The UFO museum is well done and very worth a stop to visit. We loved it as did Liíll Umberto and Flo, our travel mascots. There are even street lights that have alien eyes on them, alien loans to be had and just all kinds of alien related murals all over town.  Enjoy and I am telling you they are out there. Oh, the other very important thing to do in New Mexico is find the best green chile cheeseburger so I started in Roswell at Peppers Grill and Bar. They put out a very good green chile cheeseburger and it was over a week before I found a better one.
