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.

June 30, 2008 – I recently came across a website that you shouldn’t go to if it will gross you out. The alternative dictionaries site has two pages of coarse Spanish slang and usually indicates which country or countries the slang is used in.

The link takes you to the page where all the words are listed. I was dismayed to see quite a few words I thought were innocuous on the list, but happily when I read their definitions, few of the ones I checked were used in coarse ways in Mexico.

Here is a sample entry, which I might actually use:

mala semana (adj., fem) (noun, fem.) menstruation note Literally, means “bad week”. It is pronounced “MA-la say-MAH-na”.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
