Albuquerque is the most populous city in the U.S. state of New Mexico, about 550,000 people. It’s placed in the central part of the state, straddling the Rio Grande. The Sandia Mountains run along the eastern side.

Albuquerque has an arid desert climate. It’s near the edge of the Colorado Plateau and the average annual precipitation is less than half of evaporation. Any month averages below freezing.

Albuquerque was named by governor Francisco Cuervo y Valdes in honor of Francisco, Duke of Alburquerque, who was viceroy of New Spain in the 17th century. Still today, the city retains much of its historical Spanish cultural heritage.

Thus, in the Old Town, ancient Indian and Spanish cultures come to life through old churches, charming shops and quiet streets.

But Albuquerque is also a modern city which lies at the center of the New Mexico Technology Corridor, a concentration of high-tech private companies and government institutions along the Rio Grande.

In fact, it was rated seventh among America Engineering Capitals in 2014 by Forbes as well as among the Top 50 Best Places to Live and Play by National Geographic Adventure magazine in 2007.

Albuquerque is home to the University of New Mexico.

Very interesting is the Albuquerque Biological Park, which features a zoo, aquarium and botanic garden.

The Guild Cinema presents a unique and compelling program of “eclectic cinema” including Closet Cinema (the Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival).

Have you ever go to Albuquerque? Visit the city and enjoy ‘Better Call Saul’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ atmosphere.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
