Kicks on Route 66

Travelling in the US, it's quite easy to pick up Route 66 somewhere along the line. This is what happened when I was on the border between New Mexico and Texas. First there was lunch in an original - and now vintage -  diner in Tucumcari, a town on Route 66. A 1960's motel open and in full use was alongside a disused motel and nearby was a very cool, old-style garage with vintage cars.

Inside the diner - decor authentic, food good!

The motel which is still open, with its colourful doors and chairs

But this one's closed and falling apart

This was followed by a visit to the ghost town of Glen Rio on the old Route 66. More about this next time - watch this space.....
