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.

Feb. 9, 2005 — We’re leaving Guanajuato this morning, going on to Pozos, an old mining town not far away that is beginning to be restored. We’ve been here a month, a full and complex month. I won’t miss the graffiti everywhere, the street dogs ( though not as bad here as in some other […]

January 2005 — Last night when I went to bed around 11, I was still pretty awake, so I started paying deliberate attention to the sounds. Someone must have been walking along our street about two blocks down the hill, because the barking from rooftop dogs in that direction reached a frenzy. A motorcycle roared […]

January 2005 — Guanajuato is a very interesting small city in the Bajio, central highlands of Mexico. At some 6700 feet in altitude, it’s got a nice climate all year. It’s certainly pleasant now, mid-January. We sleep under a quilt at night, use our motorhome heater for a little while in the morning, and wear […]

Guanajuato is quite an easy place to get to. It’s near the geographic center of Mexico, however that was calculated. About 10 miles west of the city is a mountain called Cubilete which is said to be the very center and is a pilgrimage spot, with a statue of Christ atop it. But I’d better […]

When we spent a month in Guanjuato, I was more interested in finding out about its real estate than about that of other Mexican cities, because this charming city was then on our short list of Mexican places where we might like to live, part-time or full-time. I first poked around on the internet (searching […]

Guanajuato is a very photogenic town, so I may have overloaded this page with photos. So while they load I’ll tell you a story about our last visit. The cover photo for our Mexican Pizza video I’m writing this while in Guanajuato. My husband Kelly and I were last here 14 years ago, when we […]

The young man worked at a coffee shop we went to, near the Tunel Santa Fe, and the young woman worked at a bakery on Dos Rios. I felt that the two of them had the spirit of their beautiful, vibrant city, Guanajuato…

Guanajuato was for centuries one of the richest cities in Mexico, as countless wealth poured out of its silver mines. This was before Mexico had gained its independence, and much of the wealth went to Spain — perhaps part of the reason that Guanajuato played an important part in the story of Mexican independence. An […]

Guanajuato hotels all have one thing in common… they are completely full in October, during the city’s annual Cervantino festival.  Do book months in advance for that, or stay in another city and come in for the events. Other popular times when Mexicans travel throughout the country are the Christmas and Easter holidays. At all […]
