Where in the world is the Merry Rose?

From these photos, can you guess where we went on a few day getaway with friends?

Please note that this first photo is not a photo of us.

Here's a hint: If you were a home manager in this area in the past, you might have cooked German sausages. Or, you might have daily rolled tortillas out on a flat stone, using a rolling-pin shaped stone to shape them. Or, you might have recipes for prickly pear and for mesquite beans memorized. This area is a blend of several cultures, each of which had their own style of house and cuisine and language, and which all melded into one modern culture.
