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.

Feb 15, 2006 — The Mexican house that I blogged about a while back is now ours! We closed yesterday. I had been quite secretive about where it was or just what it was, until we closed. A little caution was probably not a bad thing, as I had a chance after closing to chat a little with the listing agent. He said he’d gotten a lot of calls and internet questions after we were under contract, and that he could have sold the place for many thousands more! So we feel even more lucky.

We met the sellers at closing, and they are very nice people, a doctor in Guadalajara and his wife. The doctor told us what two of the trees we hadn’t identified are: a pistachio and and a lychee. He planted all the trees there, over the 35 years they owned the place.

We will be offline for a bit, as tomorrow we are going over there and it will take a while to set things up there. The house is in the town of San Juan Cosala, about 5 miles west of Ajijic and very different, much more Mexican.
