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.

June 24, 2006 — It’s great to be in Crestone, Colorado, again, where we livedĀ  before going to Mexico.

We’re seeing old friends who feed us royally and take us into their lives. But would we want to live here again part of the year? It’s a question that’s never far from the back of my mind. Sometimes I feel like I don’t want to leave next week, other times I can hardly wait to be back to Lake Chapala. Kelly and I have gone out to the land we own here a couple of times, just to feel being there. It feels good to me, but the multi-home lifestyle feels full of complications.

There are some palpable differences in climate, and lakeside wins those comparisons! It’s dry and windy here, hot some days, and smoke is in the air (and my eyes) from forest fires burning far enough away that those fires are not a threat here, but the risk of fire here is something that everyone talks of. This region is in a serious drought.

There are so many wonderful people here, and after ten years living here we can’t even go to other towns in this valley without enjoying the rich texture that a sense of community brings.
