Accommodations in Taos

Sunlit kitchen

Mark took good care of us in Taos.  He found us an awesome house to stay at and stocked, rather stuffed, the fridge with libations.  The house had rooms for everyone and an amazing number of bathrooms.What was amazing is how small the house looked on the outside.  I gather Taos is also something of an artists' colony and the house was full of local art.

He had teashirts made for each of us with '888' and 'Taos' on them.  A reunion T shirt!  Highlights for me included playing gin rummy with Scott and Tomas, the backyard hot tub (lots of 'hot tub time machine' jokes), and cheese and crackers after skiing.

On the final night Mark cooked up steaks, potatoes, and string beans for dinner.  And we opened a few bottles from the case of wine he had provided.  I do believe that it was the first time that all eight of us who graduated in 1988 had been together since graduation.  We've gotten together 7 a few times but to the best of my recollection never all eight.  Patrick
