      Thanks, Kimberly!

      I hope to visit again in 2012, actually. Roswell was more fun than I expected.

    I traveled thru Roswell for the first time in March of 2010. I LOVE all the references to UFOs & space aliens. Too funny!

      Hi Laree’ & Debby: Thanks for your comments. I would definitely like to go back to Roswell sometime, especially during their yearly Alien Festival. That has got to be fun. :) ~Tui
