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.

March 9, 2006 — I’m in the mood to point out that living in any other country is a challenge. Interesting, yes, worthwhile, yes, but not entirely bliss! Mexican culture grows out of a tremendously different historical past than ours, and there are numerous opportunities for misunderstandings between “us” and “them.” This comment isn’t based […]

March 5, 2006 — We’ve been busy getting set up in our tiny new house… the interior space is something under 600 square feet. We have a kitchen/dining room and a bedroom/two offices space, as well as a bathroom. Our living room will be mostly the front veranda. Here our dog Larry is guarding a […]

March 25, 2006 —  Yesterday I received two emails from readers of this blog. Among other things, they asked: “Now that you are done with the decision to sell your house in the U.S……how are you feeling about it all?” and “Do you still think that you made a good decision about locating there? Settling […]

Feb 15, 2006 — The Mexican house that I blogged about a while back is now ours! We closed yesterday. I had been quite secretive about where it was or just what it was, until we closed. A little caution was probably not a bad thing, as I had a chance after closing to chat […]

January 10, 2006 — Kelly is recovering extremely well from his broken rib. He can do a little more each day, but is being very careful not to overdo. And of course, I’m right there to grumble if I think he’s doing too much! Thanks to everyone who has sent good wishes. So we are […]

January 28, 2006 — While our friend Peter was here, he went into Guadalajara one day to check out a school where you can get accreditation to teach English as a foreign language. He’s very interested in teaching English in a Spanish speaking country sometime, and his research had indicated that having some form of […]

Oct. 5, 2005 — Last weekend I met an American woman who has spent a lot of time in Mexico, from Chihuahua to Oaxaca and in between — mostly in cities, I think. She said she could have lived there for the rest of her life… except for one thing. Air quality. In particular, the […]

August 18, 2005, in Colorado — Last night Kelly showed slides and I talked about living in Mexico. Some 30 to 40 people turned up and quite a few of them were seriously interested in spending time in Mexico or even moving there. One friend is heading for the Yucatan soon; others were thinking of […]

May 2005 — Here are a couple of other Mexican blogs for your enjoyment, while I’m off in the northlands… billiemercer.blogspot.com/ Billie contributes comments on my blog here now and then, and has a delightful personal blog herself. I know she also has a bunch of photos up at flickr, a fascinating website where Kelly […]

May 8, 2005 — We were going to leave our small town of Bernal, Mexico, today. We were planning to drive north to Texas, visit in New Mexico, and go on home to Colorado. We’ll still do all that, but later. We have a reprieve. It’s got two causes: we are in the midst of […]
