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.

Jan 2, 2008 – When our friend Peter was here over the holidays, I interviewed him briefly about teaching English in Mexico. This is my first actual video on youtube — I’ve done a couple of slideshows before –and I learned a few things technically in making it, so future efforts should improve. Anyway, if you are interested in teaching English, or if you are an old friend from Crestone who remembers Peter back when he was our “teenage slave” helping us build our house there, have a look!

    Hello! I found your blog recently and am thrilled as I am thinking of moving to Mexico in a year or two. I’ve been searching for information on teaching English there so this post excited me very much. Alas I am not able to hear Peter – your voice is quite loud (sometimes too much so with volume on high to try and hear him) but cannot make out enough of what he’s saying to get anything out of it. Sounds as if microphone was by you and not him? Thanks though, good thought!Barbara in Washington

    Sorry, Barbara! This was my first attempt at making a video, just using my regular digital still camera, and yes its built in mike was right by me. Next time I do something like this, I will try to improve technically. In a nutshell, he recommends either having teaching experience or getting certified somehow. he’s making about $500 US per month plus free rent in a house with other teachers.
