Travel-blogue Albuquerque - Place

What does place mean? How many times to you have to go to a place before you connect to it? Can you connect to a place if you never live there? How much do you need to understand about a place before you connect with it?

These are a lot of my typical questions. I am back in Albuquerque for the second time this year. It is the fourth time I have traveled here for business. Every time I come here I have a different experience. Every time I see a little different part of the city.

All of this makes me think about how many times I have visited places. How many times have I spent the night in different cities? I made a list of the cities I have visited at least twice and how many nights I have spent there. I have excluded the places where I have ever lived. This is a list I made off the top of my head.

Some of these cities are places that I feel I understand. Other cities are places I barely know. I am not sure what makes these places different from each other or what connects me to them. I know this list says more about the people I have known then the person I am. I still think it connects to the person I am.
