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 6, 2007 — I’ve mentioned before that there is a charming little coffee house in San Juan Cosala. Kelly’s sister Molly was just here for about ten days, and one of the first things we did was go out for coffee with her.

In the picture above, Kelly and I are enjoying a latte (him) and a chai latte (me). The flan and cheesecake are heavenly too, but I do find it possible (barely) not to indulge every time I go there. The hearts are dangling because it was shortly after Valentine’s Day.

The little tables are yin-and-yang… two can be fit together or used alone. Very cute. The first time I went here, I couldn’t believe I was in this town, but now I must admit I am beginning to take it for granted.

Below is a picture of Claudia, the owner, with me. Claudia is from San Juan Cosala, in fact the cafe is located in property her family owns. She is a university-educated biologist, and has worked in that field, but she is now having great fun sharing her positive energy and love of life through the cafe! It is becoming popular with us foreigners and it also provides a place where young Mexican couples can gather. I think the foreigners tend to favor the mornings and the Mexicans the evenings, in general.

Cafetto Saga is located in the heart of San Juan Cosala, about 15 miutes west of Ajijic by car, on Calle Cardenal, towards the lake from the plaza. From the plaza, go downhill past the large statue of of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and it’s about two and a half blocks on the right. The entrance is not especially large, so watch for it. At present, the cafe is open from 8 AM to noon and again from 6 PM to fairly late, and I think it’s open every day except Monday. See you there!

UPDATE 2009: I am not sure of the hours now, it may only be evenings.
