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.

Dec. 4, 2006 — The first table at the Maestros del Arte fair that I knew I would have to come back to  was that of the Bordados Santa Cruz, from the state of Michoacán, near Lake Patzcuaro.

Their whimsical designs captivated me. So eventually I came back and after mulling over a variety of delightful items, I bought a t-shirt.

But what a t-shirt! Here are some close-ups from the embroidery on it, representing village life:

And here is the whole design:

I think I’ll go back to that booth next year. The price of this t-shirt was 200 pesos, just over $18.00 US.
