Turquoise and Chile

Turquoise and chile intermingle freely and often here in the Native American Jewelry Capital of the world. Sandy and I met one day last week at Genaro's, a very popular Gallup luncheon hot spot, for some tongue scorching red and green chile entrees. While we dined we had 7 different Navajo vendors stop by our table. Sandy, bare-necked and hungry on arrival, left the restaurant sodium repleted, gut warmed, and neck adorned. It's all part of the good life in Gallup, New Mexico. Total cost: meal, drinks, necklace, tax, and tip--$98.36.
