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!

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.

Sept 14, 2007 — These photos were taken by my husband Kelly yesterday, September 13, as San Juan Cosala (by Lake Chapala) dug out from the mud and mess in the aftermath of the waterspout the day before, and we walked around our town. I doubt I’ll forget the word for mud: lodo. Below is […]

Sept 19, 2007 — It’s been a week now since the waterspout hit San Juan Cosala and filled many parts of the town with mud, rocks, and other debris. There was a tremendous outpouring of help at first, but it’s inevitable that it will taper off. Many of us foreigners who live here by Lake […]

Conversation with Roberto Villa Lobos Sept 17. 2007 — Kelly and I got lucky when we hired Roberto Villa-Lobos last year. He’s one of the most civic-minded people I know, and a great resource for us in learning about San Juan Cosala. He’s worked for many years at the large balneario (hot springs) here in […]

August 8, 2007 – We’re getting settled back in at home after our trip to the US, and we’re greatly enjoying all the rains. The rainy season here in San Juan Cosala is in full swing. Kelly recently noticed waterfalls above town, and hiked up to very near them. (He went up the street that […]

June 23, 2007 — Early one Sunday morning, Kelly and I went for a walk in our town of San Juan Cosala, heading roughly westward out of town on Calle Zaragosa. When we came upon this woman making tortillas outside her front door, I asked her permission to take a photo to show my friends. […]

May 6, 2007 — Continuing from the last article about the wedding we went to recently, in the last photo there, you can see a little boy holding a little bag. It contained confetti, which was given out by two adorable little girls… with the results that when the newlyweds walked out of the church, […]

May 26, 2007 –Our town of San Juan Cosala has two Ballet Folclorico groups. The other evening, one of them celebrated its second anniversary with a free public performance in the town plaza. Kelly had his camera along and got some interesting shots without flash. The dancing was stunning, and it was fun to be […]

April 29, 2007 — Not long ago, we had the chance to go to a Mexican wedding. A friend of ours, Noe Lopez, a realtor who had helped us buy our house, is from our town of San Juan Cosala and was marrying a young woman from here. One of the more interesting parts of […]

April 28, 2007 — Good Friday has been behind us for a while but these pictures of Kelly’s, taken here in San Juan Cosala where we live, are still interesting. Pilgrimages are a very common feature of Mexican life that we didn’t know about until we began traveling around Mexico a lot, several years ago. […]

March 6, 2007 — I’ve mentioned before that there is a charming little coffee house in San Juan Cosala. Kelly’s sister Molly was just here for about ten days, and one of the first things we did was go out for coffee with her. In the picture above, Kelly and I are enjoying a latte […]
