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.

I enjoyed capturing my impressions of Ajijic in this photo collage of pictures my husband and I took there. Most were taken in Ajijic, but the one of hillside houses is in nearby Chula Vista, and the statue in the upper right was in front of a house in that area. The picture of mountains across Lake Chapala shows some of the liria or water hyacinth that grows on the lake, in the dark lines in the water.

The flowers cascading over a wall is a very common sight, year round. The Americans or Canadians chatting in the walkway next to Ajijic’s plaza is another common sight. There’s a strong quality of relaxation there.

Once I had assembled the photos in Photoshop Elements, I couldn’t resist playing around with some of the filters. “Posterizing” made the collage brighter and more dream-like than reality, which is how Ajijic feels to me!
