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 6, 2005 —  I was going to dig right into our Platiquemos Espanol CDs while getting the house ready to sell, but it isn’t happening… yet. Too much of that house-project work requires my full attention.

I found the old college textbook I had for learning Spanish and I am reading its lessons as a review. That’s easier. But I don’t think I’m learning much… the text will go in our garage sale pile when I’m done skimming through it.

Oh well. One of these days I’ll get back to the process of really learning Spanish. Kelly’s at least as busy as I am and I don’t think he’s been practicing Spanish either.

I’m still greatly enjoying the ease of speaking English. It sure shows me how important it is to me to be able to speak freely with people. I suspect that whether Mexico or another Spanish-speaking country would work out for me as a long-term home is directly tied to how well I do in the language. This isn’t necessarily true for everyone, but as a writer and a conversation-lover, it is for me.

Now that’s motivation.
