San Francisco di Assisi #18

This morning we visit the Taos Pueblo, which is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. The multi-storied adobe buildings have been continuously inhabited for over 1,000 years. My photograph of the church San Francisco.

Madeleine: "Did those Indians paint the windows?"

Me: "Where is Spain?"
The kids have no idea.
Me: "How can you not know where Spain is?"
Eitan: "We don't know everything, Dad."
Me: "Well you are going to know this. What country is across the channel from Britain?"
Madeleine: "Russia?"
Eitan: "France."
Me: "And what is next to France?"
Eitan: "Germany."
Me: "And the other side?"
Eitan: "I don't know. We haven't gotten that far yet."

Madeleine: "Is he a proper Indian?"
Me: "Why don't you kids ask him where we can find a good Mexican?"
