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.

I just learned that a friend of mine has put together a very useful website and PDF document on the subject of life planning, specifically for Jalisco but also pertinent wherever you are. Visit http://lifeplanninginjalisco.wordpress.com/ to find out more. This is a topic that it is all too easy to procrastinate on, but Susan has […]

Here’s a delightful video made by a local band, the Tallboys.  See if it doesn’t make you want to come running down here! I recognize just about all the spots where they are singing. Want more? Go to Youtube and type in Tallboys.

When Americans think of Mexico, often it’s a pleasant fantasy about lying on a beach somewhere, maybe Puerto Vallarta or Cancun. There may be a margarita somewhere in the picture, but hey you can have margaritas up north too! I think the essential parts of this popular daydream are the sun and the water. A […]

We have a little sound recorder, and here are the sound files we’ve made. I think that if you have an mp3 player on your computer, clicking on the file name will simply play the file. Jolly Mexican Mechanics is a 45-second mp3 file that was made about 7:30 AM on December 13, 2005. We […]

April 18, 2009 — With Earth Day coming up on Wednesday, I thought I’d write about what Kelly and I do to minimize our ecological footprints. We chose to live in one of the most benign climates on earth, at 5,000 feet in the tropics. Days are warm, nights cool off. There is seasonal variation, […]

April 11, 2009 – It’s Semana Santa, and we prefer to stay off the highways. From day before yesterday through tomorrow, it’s one of the main holidays of the year here… and we really stay off the highways! We’re about to walk down for lunch to our favorite local restaurant, Viva Mexico, here in San […]

April 4, 2008 – I’ve been reflecting on life in Mexico. It’s been over three years since we began living in our house here, and I’ve often wavered in whether I’d rather be here or in the US. Many of my American and Canadian friends here in the Lake Chapala area take to life here […]

Sept 10, 2008 — We’re all here. I’m sure we have our Mexican counterparts but right now I’m thinking about us foreigners. The drama gets pretty intense at times. Okay, I’ll fess up that Kelly and I are the introverts and the extroverts — both of us. We do enjoy going out now and then, […]

Sept 6, 2008 – American living abroad? You can vote. I didn’t realize till we looked into it that any American living out of the country, whether civilian or military, is entitled to vote in national elections in the state where they last lived in the US. Get all the details, and fill out a […]

July 17, 2008 – We had such a good time in Sayulita recently that we can really see how people love to go there. Sayulita is up the coast a ways from Puerto Vallarta, and right on the beach. But would we want to live there permanently? No, thanks, and here is why: We are […]
