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.

It’s where we keep our washing machine, lawn mower, tools, and […]

July 15, 2006 — some Americans we’ve met had their laptops stolen from their home on a weekend afternoon while they were out. This is theft against property, but it has had far-reaching emotional implications for them. They lost the computers with some valuable files, but they also lost the feeling of being safe at […]

May 7, 2006 — A reader recently emailed me these questions: How do you find the crime where you live? Is there a lot or a little? Are the Americans “hit” more since people think they are rich? I don’t think I am an expert on crime anywhere, but I’ll have a try at this […]

April 30, 2005 — A couple of days ago, Kelly and I were returning to the small town of Bernal in central Mexico, where we are living, from the city of Queretaro, an hour’s bus ride away. Queretaro has a huge and quite new bus station. If you drove into it thinking you were in […]
