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.

It’s been months now since my husband and I moved back to Colorado. As I write this, there is snow on the ground here, and I daresay we will see a good bit more this winter. But never mind the snow, I want to write  about Mexico.

At first,  I was simply relieved that the trip had gone well. Kelly drove our motorhome with our two dogs in it, and I rode with a Mexican friend who drove our car. We had our two cats in crates in the back seat. We stopped in motels where our friend had his own room and we and our four pets had another. It was a bit grueling. True, the borders are getting more dangerous, but we had no problems.

Then once back here in the town where we used to live, we got caught up in fixing up our house, unpacking, seeing friends, and all that, while still trying to keep our home-based business going. It is great to be back in a place where I have so many long-standing friendships.

“Do you miss Mexico? Are you going to live there half the year?” were questions we got a lot.

Yes, we miss our friends in Mexico, we miss walking down the street to Agustin’s wonderful Viva Mexico restaurant in San Juan Cosala, we miss our swimming pool and playing badminton in our yard  year-round in the heavenly climate. We miss the warm-hearted smiles of the Mexican people. We miss the lower cost of living. But all of these are offset by various pleasures here.

We may go back for a vacation some other winters, but this year I am on a new Library Board here in Colorado, and that will keep me here. We did sell our house there, and we don’t like a bilocational lifestyle, specially not with dogs, cats, and organic gardening.

Viva Mexico! We had a wonderful time there and you are always in our hearts.

    Rosana and Kelly – I am sure Mexico misses you two as well. Of course having lived just over the mountain from you two in Colorado we know the weather and the social climate – it is missed here in Mexico.Well the social climate is missed.

    BUT – my bones are happier in warmer climes and there are friends everywhere.

    One World – Peace!

    Thanks, John! Yep, enjoying the social climate but missing the climate climate.
