In this episode, I'm chatting with John Biethan, who studied metaphysics, world religion, nutrition for seven years. In addition, Jon also studied music such as the bass guitar, piano, harpsichord and went on to manage singer/songwriters, most notably Chris Calloway, Cab Calloway's daughters. He and Chris toured the "Cab Calloway Legacy" show together for three years. John lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for over two decades. In this conversation, we talk about the history and culture of this remarkable place, why it's on my bucket list, and amazing gluten-free restaurant options in Santa Fe. 


Fun Things to Do in Santa Fe


Museums are always on my list of things to do when I travel, which is why I was excited about the Georgia O’Keefe museum and the Gerald Peters Art Gallery and Folk Art Museum on the Hill. I didn’t know this, but Santa Fe is the fifth largest artistic center in the world! Apparently, Santa Fe is a significant crossroads for singers, songwriters, and artists because this city is a stopover for artists traveling to and from California.


The Indian Market, where local native Americans sell their art, rugs, and other cultural items, and the Spanish Market of Santa Fe are two fun, local markets you can attend in the summer and early fall. During August and September, find lots of local goods and fare to buy and try. In addition to these two markets, visit Zozobra Art Park during harvest time for great local fun.


Chaco Canyon Historical Park, located northwest of Albuquerque, is a tremendous local, national park to visit and learn the history and culture of the region. Two Grey Hills Trading Post sells a variety of native blankets and jackets. Support local Native Americans by stopping by and making a purchase!
