We're in our new place as of the 5th. Our furniture, however, still isn't here. (It's supposed to be here later today, though. Here's hoping!) We're not really bothered by the lack of furniture, since the place is so awesome. We have a great view of the mountains to the east, the apartment is significantly larger than our old place, and it's so quiet we're going to have to get used to hearing birds again. I don't mind that one bit. Nobody's screaming, no music thumping... just whippoorwills and rock doves so far. Oh, and some sort of quail. There's always a breeze, too. Temperatures have been in the mid- to upper-seventies so far, but at night it drops down to the 50s or so. No complaints from me.

The town is fantastic. Tons of shops and other things to do/see, but it doesn't feel that way. Long Island felt crowded and over-developed. Congested. Paved. Dirty. There are significantly more shops, restaurants, and other such things here. Quite a bit more. But it's not so... plain. They maintain the art and architecture of the southwest in their buildings, streets, and even malls and strip malls. It's fantastic. (I know I said that already, but it bears repeating.)

So, our journey is over, but there's more to do. For now, though, I think it's time for lunch. So there.
