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. 19, 2007 — Ah, so many sounds here! I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few…

  • The Scott Joplin tune that heralds the truck selling ice cream and other snacks, off and on during the day
  • “Zeta G-A-S!!!… honk honk…Zeta G-A-S!!!… honk honk…Zeta G-A-S!!!… honk honk…Zeta G-A-S!!!… honk honk…Zeta G-A-S!!!… honk honk…Zeta G-A-S!!!… honk honk…” can be heard from early morning till pretty late. The gas is propane and as most smaller homes only have one tank they need it fast.
  • Kids playing, usually quite a jolly sound
  • Fireworks, often
  • Recorded exhortations early Sunday morning which for a long time I thought came from the church but gradually realized it was a truck driving around selling a miracle health cure
  • A brass band practicing, frequently… they aren’t right now and I kinda miss them
  • Neighbors playing radios or CDs, usually Mexican romantic tunes or mariachi
  • Lots of thunder in the rainy season
  • The occasional large airplane flying low on approach to the Guadalajara airport
