My husband and I love the plaza in Santa Fe and were looking forward to visiting Old Town in Albuquerque. We drove and as we got nearer, we started noticing all the chain-link fenced yards with bars on the doors and windows. Not to be detered, we parked our car, double-checked that it was locked and carried all our valuable with us. Still, the area did not feel safe. The center of Old Town is filled with historic buildings and there were lots of shops, but does anyone really need another to visit another tourist shop filled with cheap items from China? We were hoping to see jewelry and hand-made art from the people in the community but we did not see anything like that. We walked through quickly because we didn't feel safe, got back in our car and headed out.
