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.

Sept 19, 2007 — It’s been a week now since the waterspout hit San Juan Cosala and filled many parts of the town with mud, rocks, and other debris. There was a tremendous outpouring of help at first, but it’s inevitable that it will taper off.

Many of us foreigners who live here by Lake Chapala, whether in the town itself as my husband and I do, or in other Lakeside towns such as Ajijic, Chapala, and Jocotepec, have decided that our help will be ongoing, in various ways. Needs assessment has been going on quietly behind the scenes. We are lucky to have expats here who have been involved in disaster relief in many parts of the world.

We’ve been able to help some people, both Mexicans and not, who live far away, to get in touch with people they care about or at least to get word back to them that those folks are okay. This has been very gratifying.

Now, for some video today. Here’s a link to a Youtube video showing some of the San Juan Cosala damage. It’s very nicely done.
