New Mexico, USA

If it wasnt for Gaby, i wouldnt have had 1/3 of the US map cards in my collection!  And this one came as total surprise in my mailbox!! So with a HUUUGGEE Thank you to dear Gaby, i can tick off New Mexico as a state from which I have a map card

Do you know what I utterly love about this postcard? Reminds me of coffee, coz of the brownish tone it has. I dont see any relation to coffee on the card, but to me this card is like a delicious cup of coffee...maybe a small resemblance to chocolate as well, but coffee wins with no doubt :)

Anyway, it has text on the back, which is perfect, so here you go, instead that you read my rants :)

New Mexico

Known as the "Land of Enchantment", New Mexico's first exploartion by European settlers was in 1540, by Francisco Vázquez Coronado, a Spanish explorer searching for gold. New Mexico was the 47th state to join the US, and gained statehood on January 6, 1912.

It really makes me wonder? Is there any actual connection between New Mexico and coffee actually? I tried to google, but all it gives me are coffee shops in New Mexico...

Oh, and I forget to mention, I think, but my dad lives in New Mexico, the site of the supposed 1947 alien crash. :)
