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.

Jan. 24, 2009 – Every now and then I get an email from a Mexican man I know who lives in California. The other day I was amused to get this one:

virgin of guadalupe chain letter

The red text under the picture tells me that I should send the picture to ten people including the one who sent it, and my problems will resolve themselves. Well, I don’t do chain letters, but hey, it will reach more than ten people via the blog!

    Wait a minute… That Virgen de Guadalupe is awfully white! Is that the California version?

    I suspect she is that pale because the blood just rushed from her face at the thought of blessings coming through email. ;>

    You guys are BAD! I didn’t say Guadalupe on purpose in the original post. Just asked my cleaning lady, who is a great friend, what she thinks. She said that’s not the Virgin of Guadalupe, because she is so white.
    Then she thought she might be the virgin of Medujorge, but doubted it because the clothing wasn’t arranged quite right or something like that. Maybe it’s the virgin of Fatima, she mused.
    Imagining that she could keep going with other names, I said, but they are all really the same, right? (in Spanish) and she said yes, just different forms.
