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.

Nov. 22, 2005 — A Windows crash has me reinstalling programs on my computer. I wasn’t counting on that. But actually it’s a good thing as my computer is running more smoothly now and I have a pretty good idea how to do it if I should need to again. Kelly and I sometimes say that we have “good bad luck” — that is, we have bad luck like anyone does, but usually there is something in it that turns out well.

I’m glad to still be in Crestone around now, actually. There’s a wonderful local nonprofit called Neighbors Helping Neighbors, and on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, they put on a free Thanksgiving-style potluck for the whole community. It’s one of the social high points of the year, with hundreds of people coming over the afternoon. I greatly enjoyed telling people that we are buying some land here. And that will be a done deal tomorrow!

This weekend, along with eating with friends on Thursday, we’ll enjoy the annual Winterfest, with crafts and all sorts of things for sale in several venues around town. Our target is to leave by December 1st but it’s okay if we run over by a few days.

Great news in the cat department, both here and in Mexico — our two cats here, sister and brother Midnight and Moonlight, can stay in our house till we come back. We don’t really want to take them to Mexico as there are so many feral cats in the neighborhood. And our Mexican cat, Misty, has had several visits from an American friend of ours there, and he reports she is a bit timid but quite playful and friendly too.

Packing is pretty much in hand now. It’s more the work stuff that is grueling. Temperatures are in the teens every night lately — an incentive to go south!
