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

May 25, 2006 — This evening I came across a website which is terrific for improving your ear, once you are beyond the basic levels of Spanish. A woman who lives in Spain has recorded a number of short commentaries, and you can read the text while you follow the Spanish or you could just listen. Then, on the one I listened to, she discussed it a while. The only thing that might surprise those of us who live in the Americas is that, being in Spain, she uses the vosotros form for the plural of tu. I didn’t find it a problem, even though I haven’t thought about those verb endings in years.

I call it a podcast, and you may wonder what that is. It’s kind of a blog on steroids. It uses various media — this one uses written words and sound files, while others may have video. It’s kind of a new thing online, and I’ll be saying more later. I’m beginning to move just a little bit that way myself, with the sound files I put up sometimes. I’m also wondering about doing spoken bits just as I do written bits, where I talk about things here in Mexico.

Here’s the link and a bit of her description:
