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 3, 2007 — Kelly and I are very happy today. Our dear friends John and Amanda are driving with their daughter through New Mexico en route to Colorado, where they are from. I haven’t written much about this, but it’s taken over a year for John and Amanda to finalize the adoption of their Mexican-born daughter. It’s been quite a roller coaster.

Mexico is not the easiest place in the world to go through the adoption process. They’ve had plenty of delays and red tape. But it is one of the best places to get your baby early. They have had theirs since she was two days old. Kelly and I have spent a lot of time with them here. In fact, it was because we were coming to visit them that our lives changed. Our plan was to go back to Bernal, Queretaro, but we came here to Lake Chapala to spend Christmas a year ago with them. That’s when we began to realize that this is a better climate and then various things led us to buy our house here.

So for now the intertwining of our lives with theirs will be less immediate. No more barbecues together for a while, no more picking up the baby and tossing her into the air. (That was getting a bit harder lately, as she’s not really a baby any more!)

Today I am near tears… of gratitude. And we’ll see them again pretty soon, as we do think we’ll be going to Colorado sometime this summer.
