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.

Nov. 23, 2007 – Our friend Peter stopped in recently for a couple of days. He’s just finished a month in Guadalajara at the International Teacher Training Organization, where he got TEFL-certified, to teach English as a second language. This school helps its graduates find jobs. Peter’s classmates are heading to Cancun, Chiapas, Puerto Vallarta, and other points around Mexico, while we were delighted that Peter accepted a position in Zamora, a small city in Michoacan, not very far from here. We look forward to driving over to visit him sometime soon. He was told he’d be teaching a variety of ages — and will be able to take some Spanish classes himself too.

Just before going to a Chivas soccer game, Peter and a couple of his friends went to a taqueria. Here’s the menu:

I don’t know what all of those things are but lengua is tongue. They ordered a variety of things:

Peter’s friend Jason is having an eye taco here. Peter said they were chopped up enough that the eyes weren’t staring at you.

How did the eyes taste? Kinda bland. You had to really scoop guacamole and hot sauce on them.

And Chivas won their soccer game, against the Jaguars. Peter was impressed with how intensely involved the audience was.
