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.

July 15, 2006 — some Americans we’ve met had their laptops stolen from their home on a weekend afternoon while they were out. This is theft against property, but it has had far-reaching emotional implications for them. They lost the computers with some valuable files, but they also lost the feeling of being safe at home in the condo they live in.

The thief came in via a locked window without bars on it, and their landlord has since paid someone to put bars on. But, in a manner so common here, it’s been several weeks and the work hasn’t been done yet. People have told this couple that sometimes thieves wait a while and then return to places where they’ve been successful. Disquieting. It’s not the only story of this sort we have heard lately.

Theft happens. How does this compare with the US? It depends on where in the US you are thinking of, I suppose.
