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.

Tripbase Blog Awards 2009

Feb. 21, 2005 — Yesterday we were invited to a Sunday afternoon rodeo here in Bernal. It was a competition between this town and another one, all in preparation for the state fair later in the year. All the competitors were dressed to the nines, and it was clear that this really mattered to everyone involved. We saw some spectacular riding. The people-watching was great too.

Here the competitors enter the ring and ride around it:

An action shot. The horse they are chasing was very smart and got away a lot. We realized that the whole thing is a ritual where everyone knows their part, horses included!

This little boy was on a very big horse, riding back and forth for hours outside the ring, looking delighted most of the time. He’ll likely be quite a rider in the future!
