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.

March 5, 2006 — We’ve been busy getting set up in our tiny new house… the interior space is something under 600 square feet. We have a kitchen/dining room and a bedroom/two offices space, as well as a bathroom. Our living room will be mostly the front veranda. Here our dog Larry is guarding a new acquisition, a bookcase in the inexpensive “rustic” style widely available. We left it on the front porch while we went to Bernal to get everything, as it had just been stained and was pretty smelly.

Here’s my desk in the same style, with our closets to the right and a dresser we had from Bernal next to it. Toilet paper is in the background because the bathroom door is open.

Kelly provided a moment of humor in the chaos of getting set up by putting this wooden snake on my laptop drawer:

When we got back from Bernal, we had a heavy bed to carry uphill to the house and we needed something in the kitchen. We went back to the same local furniture store. I was thinking of a sideboard, but they didn’t have one. We decided a slightly smaller bookcase would do the job… we will paint it later. Our friends at the store agreed to deliver it within a few hours, to move the other bookcase inside, and to move in our bed. Hard workers, they were sweating by the time they were done. So the big stuff is mostly in place. Little stuff is still strewn about… back to work I go! At least I’ve found the cable that connects my camera to my laptop or you wouldn’t be seeing these.
