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|
|The very cool garage|
|Old Chevy's on the forecourt|
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.....
