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.

Oct. 8, 2005 — The other day, we got a storage unit in a nearby town here in Colorado, another step towards heading south to live in Mexico. The young man who helped us is a third-generation Mexican-American owner of the facility. I asked if he spoke Spanish and he said not really… muy poco. He does go to Mexico from time to time, to San Carlos or Baja.

A woman working in the office said that she speaks Spanish well, and that her family here has relatives in the state of Chihuahua, not far from El Paso. Her boy friend’s family has relatives in Chiapas, almost to Guatemala, so between them they cover the north and south of Mexico. I asked her how recently she’d been to Mexico, and she said it had been twenty years. She didn’t look to be over 30.

I don’t draw any conclusions from these chats, but thought they were interesting.
