Day 1005 "If you want to get a vibe of a place, work there."
February 16, 2016
I always get asked "why I don't tow a car or moped." Well it's my main source for exercise, biking thru town for supply's. I feel it is a mode of transport which promotes spontaneous encounters you otherwise miss. I RV to visit and experience a local vibe by "working" in a location. Unlike a tourist who comes n goes (sometimes with a blatant disrespect for its culture) with his outsider perspective. That being said I was stoked to randomly ride by #fanoffilmscafe, where I stopped because it said "Air roasted coffee". I had to try just like when I saw "Air fried chicken" ... too curious not to experience. Coffee was amazing and even more amazing is the owner Mike was once a local glassblower for years, prior to cafe opening in 2012. Books, film stuff, and glass was showcased throughout.. even espresso machine handles where glass honey comb knobs! :) Was cool too meet ya Mike. (he doesn't have IG) If in #Albuquerque it's a must to buy a lb of their coffee, if your picky like me haha.
