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.

It’s been months now since my husband and I moved back to Colorado. As I write this, there is snow on the ground here, and I daresay we will see a good bit more this winter. But never mind the snow, I want to write  about Mexico. At first,  I was simply relieved that the […]

Jan 18, 2009 – A friend in the US sent my husband the link to a website called “Born Again American.” We went there and played the video. I’ve played it four times now, and it is embedded below. At first, I wondered about the born again aspect, but this video is for everyone. When […]

Oct 25, 2008 — I’m still visiting family and old friends in northern California for a few more days before heading back home. With all the questions about the economy, not to mention the election, there is lots to talk about. When I was still in Mexico, I didn’t really know how the people I […]

June 18, 2006 — We wrapped up our family time in Idaho and bought a car which we will drive back to our home in the Lake Chapala area,  a 2003 VW Jetta. We bought it and are happy with how smoothly it handles on the road. Our first tank of gas, we got 34 […]

December 2, 2005 — Last night as Kelly finished his email, I sat in our Colorado living room with Midnight Star purring beside me. The house was as clean as it was going to get, and the motorhome was crammed full. The last load had gone to our storage unit, and the last trash had […]

Nov. 20, 2005 — A friend of mine has a relative living near Los Angeles, a young woman I’ll call Amy since I didn’t get her permission to use her name. Amy is very pregnant with her second child, and her first one, a boy, has been going to the local public school. It’s a […]

Nov. 22, 2005 — A Windows crash has me reinstalling programs on my computer. I wasn’t counting on that. But actually it’s a good thing as my computer is running more smoothly now and I have a pretty good idea how to do it if I should need to again. Kelly and I sometimes say […]

Oct. 14, 2005 — It’s early on a Friday morning and today is dedicated to getting ready for tomorrow’s garage sale. We’ve been working on it off and on all week. We have some interesting challenges here in rural Colorado — we don’t want to leave our motorhome out of the garage overnight because bears […]

Oct. 18, 2005 — I greeted the Mexican tamale lady in Spanish the other day as I walked through our post office parking lot. She wondered if I wanted any tamales and I was pleased to get my verb tense right as I said, again in Spanish, that I had just eaten. In the post […]

Oct. 8, 2005 — The other day, we got a storage unit in a nearby town here in Colorado, another step towards heading south to live in Mexico. The young man who helped us is a third-generation Mexican-American owner of the facility. I asked if he spoke Spanish and he said not really… muy poco. […]
