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.

April 30, 2006 — This afternoon, a Mexican family we know came over for a couple of hours around our pool. At first, the father got in with most of the kids, while I sat and chatted with his wife and her sister and mother and Kelly roamed with his camera:

Then we got in too. The pool can hold many people! This is the first time the shallow kiddie play area has gotten a lot of use.

And here’s a teenager flying through the air!

    Gracias, Jose! Si, nos gusta mucho pasar tiempo con nuestros vecinos y amigos mexicanos, porque ellos son muy amables y tienen mucha alegria. Kelly y yo decimos que (en general) los gringos son mas rico de dinero y los mexicanos son mas rico de saber viver. Perdoneme que no puedo escribir bien el espanol!

    Verdad!

    Hace muchos anos desde he leido Cervantes. ES tiempo de leerlo otra vez? Voy a buscar un libro en ingles, como el espanol de su tiempo es bastante differente!

    Hola rosana! I’m not Cervantes yet either so I’ll write in English ;) That was a cool exchange with jose! I lived in Veracruz about 2 months last September and never even met a foreigner there :) it was great to learn some Spanish before travelling down to Argentina (all by bus, 7 months.) I studied the newspaper every day and when someone approached me in English (like, maybe 3 times haha) I would say “Lo siento, no hablo ingles.” So I got lots of practice and loved feeling like I was part of things there. I’m French speaking so that might have helped too.
    I’m moving to Veracruz as soon as possible, probably end of July. I can’t wait! Thank you for your very good blog. Que le vaya bien!
