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!

    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!
