I'm going to Santa Fe/Taos on Oct. 12, 2015. Anyone else going from Seattle area?

Joan White Sep 04, 2015 at 10:57 AM

This is my first trip with Road Scholar and I am traveling alone. Is there anyone from Maryland going on 10/12?

Hi, I'm not from Maryland (from Washington State) but also on my first RS and traveling solo so I look forward to meeting you. Nancy

A friend and I are booked for the Aug 24 program and are both novices.

Any advice anyone?
Helen Sternheim Aug 17, 2015 at 08:54 PM

Bring layers,it will be cool at night. Bring a hat and sunscreen and awater bottle. This is a great program, I attended in May.
Susan Lively Aug 18, 2015 at 05:57 AM

Thanks for the helpful advice.

Hi Linda -
I notice that in my post of Aug 6 to you I indicated a misspelling of my email address - it is sparness4@verizon.net . Looking forward to hearing from you. I'' be leaving NYC on Sun Aug 16 for LA( then Santa Fe on Sun Aug 23) so hope we touch base before I leave.

Sandra Parness Aug 06, 2015 at 01:51 PM

Hi Linda -
I got the opera tickets for Wed 8-26- spoke with a very nice agent who gave me a lot of information re ticket location, shuttle, meals. I suggest you email me so I can tell you all about it and make some plans for the evening, etc. My email address is sparness4@veriaon.net phone 212-460-5221. It sounds like a great experience -- I'm excited!
Greta Morris Aug 24, 2015 at 04:05 PM

Dear Sandra, I am also interested in attending the opera. Wednesday, 8-26, is our free evening, but Thursday, 8/27, is an optional video or film. I would be more interested in seeing Salome, which is being performed on 8/27, but if others are goin to Daughter of the Regiment, that would be fine as well. Have you gotten a ticket yet? I don't know if it is too late, but I am definitely interested. I am at the airport now, waiting for my shuttle to the hotel. I hope to touch base with you at the hotel. Best regards, .

Hi Linda -
Thanks for responding to my post - I'm looking forward to meeting you on Aug 24 - re the Opera, yes I imagine we do need tickets in advance. On Wed 8-26 the are doing The Daughter of the Regiment at 8PM , Thur 8-27 Salome . The last time I checked they had tickets in the rear mez. for $70 . So let me know the range you are interested in and I can try to order tickets on line. Best, Sandra
Linda Beach Aug 04, 2015 at 07:54 PM

That's a good price for the rear mez. If you are ok with that either opera would be fine. Just let me know what you need. Sounds like so much fun..
