Career Express Day 8 Off the bus in Santa Fe

May 9th, 2009

What do you get when you have a bus load of SME’s, technology people, education zealots and Certified Professionals and coop them up?  You let them roam free in Santa Fe!   One thing, you may notice that these photos are much better than previous photos.. reason being: I had to use my camera (which only works in well lit areas) because my iPhone was bricked when I woke up in the morning and it took me several hours to recover ;)

Lunch at The Shed TJeerd and Joanne discuss the art work on the wal! (Okay, no they didn't... ;))

We started our day in Santa Fe with lunch at The Shed where we ate some of the most interesting and amazing food in our journey.  And considering we are in New Mexico, the authenticity was not to be questioned!   

Gnarly, eh? Designs.. by Alex! :)

We went on a walk around Santa Fe, the gnarly trees above were found in the Shed’s sitting area, but we carried out into the streets!  Came across this cool Designs by Alex sign :)

Joanne signs a postcard, while somehow... my arm makes it in a photo from my own camera?! One of the few, rare and terrible photos of me :)

We came across this weird and interesting mailbox… for some reason, it was worth taking a photo of… Infact, multiple photos, but that is neither here nor there :)  After this point, we got on the road to Bandelier National Monument!

Bandelier National Monument Bus and the landscape

Welcome to Bandelier National Monument…! Be careful for Mountain Lions! Got an amazing shot of the bus here with that beautiful background! It was a cloudless sky, and a day filled with not a whole lot of wind (So, can I say hot? yea I think so :))

Blinded by... the light? Modern day office block - Cubicles

Another random shot of me (Look ma! no eyes!) That beautiful shot down below is of an ancient day office-block.   This is where people went to work, as you can see those are open air cubicles for the people to work and attend to daily business.  I think that’s actually a call center!

Dating photo?! Hey I can walk backwards on a ladder! Do not handle bats!

Yea, this is my classic dating photo, right? It shows how adventurous I am, and look I’m a property owner! I have a hole and a ladder to climb in to! Oh, and do not handle the bats!

This is one of the first flat screen televisions – It’s obviously Organic LED (OLED :))

Watch quietly as the MSLearning team treads softly into the dark.. softly.. softly…

It was a great day, beautiful sights, decent food!  We finished with Dinner at Atomic Grill! On a side note, it appears that Atomic Grill supports Windows Live ID on their website – Wow, quite an updated Website and Restaurant! :)

Art work in the grillKen and Jay, Certified PC! Chris Rue and our amazing waitress

To sum up dinner, it was a great dinner with a lot of variety.  We were cared for by an amazing waitress who was working –every- table in the place, constantly on the run and she did a spectacular job!  They had some amazing artwork on the inside and have a menu leaving you with options, options and options!    After a quick rush back to the bus we proceeded on to Phoenix AZ where we are now as I publish this!

  • This is getting a bit further subjective, except I a large amount fancy the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has added style, and some cool features like Mixview’ that allow you hastily think about it related albums, songs, or supplementary users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking by one of those will heart by that item, and another set of “neighbors” will extend keen on view, allowing you to navigate roughly exploring by like artists, songs, or else users. Verbal communication of users, the Zune “Social” is too fantastic exuberance, let you find others with mutual tastes and becoming acquaintances with them. You next can pay attention to a playlist twisted based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is too enjoyable. Folks concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can preclude the unrestricted beginning seeing your personal listening lifestyle if you accordingly choose.
