Welcome to my blog, Todo Santa Fe.
Todo means everything or all in Spanish, but for English speakers it works as to do also.
I feel lucky living in Santa Fe and this blog is my way to share with visitors to my beautiful city the fun things that I enjoy doing in Santa Fe. Often, Santa Fe casts a spell over newcomers as the ambiance and feel of the city is powerful and effecting. The land itself feels enchanted and exerts a pull on visitors causing many to return again and again.
Santa Fe is like nowhere else you’ve ever been, it’s completely unique and different. In fact, Santa Fe is known as The City Different. Santa Fe is all about art, food, and the lovely, high desert setting. Be sure to try to get a sense of the Santa Fe art scene by visiting some of the many, many galleries and museums throughout the city or one of the unique art festivals or events. Santa Fe has a unique cuisine not found anywhere else and it is a must for any visitor to the city to taste and enjoy the local spicy, chile pepper based food. Also, try to get out and enjoy the outdoors in Santa Fe as the high desert valley setting surrounded by the mountains has attracted people for centuries because of it’s incredible beauty and pleasing climate. Todo Santa Fe seeks to make your stay as enjoyable as possible by showing you different things to do in The City Different. I don’t focus on where to stay, I want to showcase the many can’t miss Santa Fe experiences and the eccentric experiences that only locals know.
Come back to my blog often to find out fun, crazy, interesting stuff to see and do for your next trip to Santa Fe.
A Little Bit About Me.
Hi, my name is Lamont.
I was born in Dallas, Texas. I have a degree in Anthropology although I never used it. I spent most of my life in the Caribbean. I lived on the island of St. Croix in the Virgin Islands for a short time and then I moved to the Dominican Republic where I lived for a total of 19 years. I owned a mountain bike touring company, a surf shop. sunglass shops, and a stand up paddle boarding tour and rental business over the years on the island. I lived in Cabarete on the north coast , Punta Cana on the east coast, and Bayahibe on the Caribbean side of the island.
I also lived in Reno, Nevada where I worked in a hospital as a nuclear medicine technologist. I went to nuclear medicine school at the University of New Mexico’s school of medicine in Albuquerque and my mother lived in Santa Fe. I fell in love with Santa Fe and could never get it out of my mind.
I was eventually drawn back to Santa Fe. I love the mild four seasons, each one more delightful than the last, the bluest blue skies, the magical landscape of majestic mountains and sweeping vistas, and the unique hot and spicy New Mexican cuisine. The combination of Native American culture, Spanish culture, and the American West cowboy culture speaks to me. The many unique features of Santa Fe combined with the liberal, progressive attitude of it’s town folk makes Santa Fe truly “The City Different.” It’s my home and I plan to stay. With this blog, I hope to help others make unforgettable Santa Fe memories too.
