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!

Sept 3, 2006 —  Here are some pictures from the church on the plaza of Mazamitla, Jalisco, a town we visited. There was a little alcove devoted to Mary, just to to the right of the front door: Here’s a closeup of Mary: The window of the alcove continues the same theme: Just outside the […]

Sept. 20, 2006 — Our trusty guidebook Moon Guadalajara: Including Lake Chapala had a few pages on Mazamitla in which a walk to a waterfall was mentioned. It sounded like a few blocks but ended up more like a couple of miles, up and down hilly cobblestone or dirt streets. The waterfall was in a […]

It’s a short day trip from the Lake Chapala area, where we live, to the delightful mountain town of Mazamitla. It took us under 2 hours each way. Many well-to-do and middle class Guadalajarans have second homes in Mazamitla, or they spend weekends and holidays in some of the rustic knotty-pine cabins that seem to […]
