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.

Why did we sell our house in Mexico? To make a long story short, I never stopped missing my very close friends (virtually family) back in the small town in Colorado where we lived for 10 years before coming to the Lake Chapala area in 2005. We went back to Colorado for the summer in […]

I knew from other trips to the US that I would like certain things — good roads with drivers who are more inclined to stay between the lines, for one!– and miss certain things from Mexico –the courtesy and warmth of Mexicans, for one. We hadn’t been in the US for almost a year when […]

Kelly and I will be flying to Denver next week, and staying in Colorado for ten weeks before flying back. This is the longest we will have been out of Mexico since we moved here three and a half years ago. But  I’m setting up a whole bunch of articles that will automatically appear, every […]

Feb 28, 2009 — This week, I received the following email, reprinted here by permission of the woman who sent it: Hi, I’m wondering if you can help me find some information about Mexico.  About I year ago, I met and became engaged to a Mexican man.  He’s from Ciudad Mante, Tamaulipas.  He wants to […]

Last week Kelly and I had dinner with some American friends who own a home in Mexico. They were living down here full time quite happily. When the stock market dropped, so did their income and nest egg. So now they are mostly back in the states, living in the home they had kept up […]

July 23, 2008 — I was surprised to get a comment on one of my older blog posts which included, in part, this comment: My husband, a Mexico native, and I soon plan to move to Mexico…Our decision was based largely on the steady decline of the US economy as well as the family ties. […]

July 28, 2008 – The other day I had the chance to visit briefly with an American man who has lived in Mexico for over ten years. I asked him if he had any tips for adjusting to this very different culture. He had a rather Buddhist attitude, I thought. He commented that Mexico gives […]

Jan 9, 2008 – I often feel rich in comparison with many of the Mexicans I know here in the Lake Chapala region. It’s not just a feeling… it’s a fact. Believe me, my fellow Americans would not consider me rich by US standards! But here it is different, and I am grateful that I […]

Oct. 9, 2007 — Since the waterspout hit San Juan Cosala, I’ve been emailing with a Mexican man who lives in California and works in the store you see here. He was last home three years ago, and he is planning to come this holiday season. He told me that his wife sold plants in […]

July 17, 2007 — We are currently on vacation in the Ozarks, and as ever, we’ve picked up some real estate brochures. We have been quite surprised that you can get a nice (or a terrible) mobile home or even a house for under $50,000 here in Arkansas. For retirees on very tight budgets who […]
