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.

August 4, 2006 — This grand old cactus was almost invisible when we bought our place, hidden behind quite a thicket of bamboo. Kelly moved the bamboo so we could admire this view from our back door. That’s lantana to the right, and the wood is decorating our chain link fence and giving us more privacy. (The wood does not touch the ground.)

Our hibiscus grew a lot while we were away, and while it blocks our view of Lake Chapala more now, it’s worth it. We’ll trim it one of these days. I keep meaning to research how to make hibiscus tea. Since the tea is bright red, I think it must be made from the flowers.

This is papyrus, the very plant that was used to make paper in Egypt. I don’t know how.

This old tree has been down a long time, and ferns and succulents live in and around it.

As I’ve mentioned before, this place belonged to a family from Guadalajara for some 30 years. The doctor who owned it loved to plant things!
