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.

Jan 13, 2006 — One Saturday afternoon recently, we went to Ajijic to go to a nursery, Flora Exotica on the corner of the carretera and the libramiento, or bypass road for going to Guadalajara without going through the town of Chapala.. After my outing a while ago to the strawberry and raspberry farms, we’re trying to find some berry plants for our own garden. We haven’t succeeded yet but we did get some other nice plants. It’s a huge nursery, and we enjoyed looking at all sorts of things.

Then we decided to go for a walk before returning home. We parked just off the main carretera, or highway, on the eastern side of Ajijic, by a neighborhood called La Floresta. It’s a peaceful, suburban sort of community, with its own garbage collection and police, and popular with foreigners as a place to live. We had often walked last year through the part of La Floresta which is between the carretera and Lake Chapala, but we had never walked in this area.

Upper La Floresta is gated, though the lower one isn’t. We liked these flowers cascading over the gate:

Here, the plants on the wall are metalwork:

Mexican tile work is often quite lively! These are from two different houses in the neighborhood:
