A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Nov. 16, 2006 –While in Colima recently, I bought a large art book called Perros en las Tumbas de Colima. With text by several writers, all in Spanish, English, and French, and a selection of photos of the dogs, it’s quite nicely done, published by the University of Colima Press in 1998. I don’t know if it’s still in print, but when I did a google search to try to find out, I did notice that copies turn up on eBay at times.

Here are sections of three photos from it. These were taken by a renowned photographer, Alejandro Rangel Hidalgo.

Two dogs dancing, like this pair, are the symbol of the city of Colima and are seen as statues in various places.

This captures something of the lives of people and dogs together:

This mother has a busy bunch of puppies!

  • Thanks for sharing these photos. These little dogs are so endearing. I bought 2 replicas in Mexico City, which now have places of honor protecting my koi pond.
