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 28, 2007 — Good Friday has been behind us for a while but these pictures of Kelly’s, taken here in San Juan Cosala where we live, are still interesting. Pilgrimages are a very common feature of Mexican life that we didn’t know about until we began traveling around Mexico a lot, several years ago.

Often we would see people of all ages walking along highways, seemingly miles from anywhere.

Here the trip was shorter but it’s steep climbing up into the mountains behind the town. People went up thisĀ  one street that leads into the mountains:

Some wore clothing characteristic of the Holy Land:

Here you can see the casual procession continuing uphill. In the upper left hand corner and all along near the top of the picture, you might just make out pilgrims higher up. They were going to a little chapel not visible in the photo.
