America is a young country, so most people do not realize that there is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Taos, which dates back one thousand years.  It is in New Mexico that the ancient cultures of Mexico, Native American tribes and Spanish explorers collide.  You can feel the history in the music, cuisine and the language.  In the smaller villages of northern New Mexico you can still hear the 16th century dialect of the Spanish conquistadorsAmerica has a strong history, and it is based around the Rio Grande.

Thanks guys for sharing your New Mexico photo.  Wonderful colours!
