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.

June 23, 2007 — Early one Sunday morning, Kelly and I went for a walk in our town of San Juan Cosala, heading roughly westward out of town on Calle Zaragosa. When we came upon this woman making tortillas outside her front door, I asked her permission to take a photo to show my friends. She kindly consented. Quite a few people still make them by hand for special occasions or in restaurants, though the widespread availability of machine-produced tortillas means that relatively few Mexican women are doing this before dawn now.

She’s flattening the dough between her hands, from the metate or grinder in front of her, then cooking the tortillas on the wood-fired griddle.
Are the handmade ones tastier? Yes!

We continued our walk into the nearby area called El Limon, where we admired these rock walls.
