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.

Tripbase Blog Awards 2009

Oct. 29, 2008 – We’re just back last night from an action-packed 12-day  trip the the US, where Kelly went to a natural building conference and I saw a lot of family and dear old friends. Plus I brought back nutritional supplements, books, open pollination garden seeds, thrift store clothing, and a variety of other odds and ends that I haven’t found in the Lake Chapala area.

With luggage and laundry still piled everywhere, I wouldn’t be blogging yet, except that a friend from Ajijic (thanks, Micki) sent me a link to a delightful video that you can practice your Spanish with… specially if you are a fan of Barack Obama.

It’s a musical video in Spanish with English subtitles and great fun. The title of this blog post picks up a word I noticed in chalk on a sidewalk in the video, and would translate, as I did in the title, “Let’s Obama!”

Here it is:

    Hola! If you love latin/mexican music, you can get your fill by watching music videos on mexican cable. Many genres, all so cool and so much fun! Romantic, festive, cheerful, you name it…There are several different channels. That is, if you aren’t already hearing enough live music in your vecino!
    Hasta luego,

    Hola! I love this video. It inspired me to write the following poem:

    Inauguration 2009

    My Mexican friends coined a new verb
    for the inauguration. Obamános (Let’s Obama)
    Passing the baton, a delicate moment
    in a relay, adroitly transitioning,
    balancing two acts simultaneously,
    racing and handing off, separating
    winners and losers, successes or failures,
    victories or defeats. It is poetry-the rhymes
    and meters of the will synchronizing
    to the music of the human spirit.

    Keith Briscoe
