We spent the day fixing the RV and getting organised before the storm got here.

Today I visited the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art in Santa Fe. While at the Museum, I was lucky enough to participate in a Colcha Embroidery class, where I was introduced to this way of stitching developed during the Spanish colonial period. This group of women meet once a month to share their creations with each other, keeping alive this tradition.
After a long flight from London and a brief detour through Denver where I was presenting at Imersa, I have finally arrived to Santa Fe. I hope that after a couple of days preparing the logistics of the trip I will have time to post more often. I just collected the RV that I will be using to travel across the Southwest. I will name it Orwell, because he first hit the road in 1984! Although he is not perfectly in shape I have no doubt he is going to be a great colleague in this adventure.
I am happy to be writing the first post of what will become the blog of my journey. In less than a week I will be arriving in Santa Fe to begin the project Spaniards: Moving forward, looking back, developed in collaboration with SPAIN arts & culture.
