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.

Oct. 29, 2008 – We’re just back last night from an action-packed 12-day  trip the the US, where Kelly went to a natural building conference and I saw a lot of family and dear old friends. Plus I brought back nutritional supplements, books, open pollination garden seeds, thrift store clothing, and a variety of other […]

Oct. 13, 2008 — I recently put up a new website: LearnSpanishRapidly.com. The subtitle is “Tips, Proven Techniques, and Reviews.” So far, there are about a dozen pages up. Just like the subtitle says, they include tips on how to learn to speak Spanish, discussion of what techniques work best, and reviews of some of […]

June 30, 2008 – I recently came across a website that you shouldn’t go to if it will gross you out. The alternative dictionaries site has two pages of coarse Spanish slang and usually indicates which country or countries the slang is used in. The link takes you to the page where all the words […]

May 9, 2008 – A couple of foreigners who live in the Lake Chapala area committed a serious driving infraction. I’m not clear on whether they did this in one vehicle or two. In any case, they found themselves stopped by the local traffic police who insisted they go to court. When their day in […]

I admit it, I’m terrible at rolling my R’s in Spanish. So when our friend Peter gave me the URL for a website where I could learn to roll my R’s, I was curious to see if I could overcome this limitation. Dubious too, but willing to check it out. Peter sent me to: http://www.wikihow.com/Roll-Your-%22R%22s […]

I’ve been reading the blog of David Rodriguez for a while now, and we have emailed a little. He is a Spanish professor and I asked him for a guest column on learning Spanish. He kindly obliged, and this is what he sent. I can vouch for his advice to read the Bible in Spanish […]

March 15, 2008 — Recently I received an email from a man who wondered if Rocket Spanish would be right for helping him learn Spanish.  (That link takes you to my review of the program on my website about learning Spanish.) Last summer, driving from our home near Guadalajara to the US, my husband and […]

Jan 21, 2008 – One of my main blog themes this year is going to be learning to speak Spanish. To see how far you can or can’t get with a little Spanish, watch this… it really had me chortling when I watched it. It’s under two minutes long, and became something of an internet […]

Dec. 15, 2007 – When I ran into Beatriz Siliceo at a party recently, I took advantage of our meeting to ask her a few questions about learning Spanish. She’s a bilingual Mexican who is so at home in English that she does translations and has taught English as a second language. I had met […]

July 14, 2007 – I thought that platicar meant to chat, and that is the first entry in my dictionary. But as I’ve heard the word used over the months that my Spanish comprehension has been gradually getting better, I’ve realized that it’s much more than that, at least in Mexico. In English “chatting” is […]
