Get Your Kicks on Route 66 (as you walk)
Albuquerque's public transportation system is useless. I don't know why, but the Route 66 bus turned onto a side street two and a half miles from my apartment and when I asked if the bus would be returning to the main road, I was told no. So I walked. Nobody walks here unless they're drunk. I was honked at twice, offered a ride by a middle-aged man in a Jaguar, and a beer by a man on a bike.
