We entered New Mexico and decided to get off Route 66 for a couple days and drive south to Carlsbad Caverns. Roswell was on the way, so we stopped. I'm not sure why I wanted to see it, since I find no reasons to believe space aliens crashed there, but that doesn't keep the town from profiting on it. Even the local McDonalds has a big flying saucer sticking out the sides. I'm not sure what I expected, but I discovered that Roswell is a lot like other tourist attraction towns, only without an attraction.
