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 29, 2007 — Not long ago, we had the chance to go to a Mexican wedding. A friend of ours, Noe Lopez, a realtor who had helped us buy our house, is from our town of San Juan Cosala and was marrying a young woman from here.

One of the more interesting parts of the ceremony was that as the new husband and wife knelt together, ropes were draped over the two of them — symbolizing the new bind between them, we guessed. That’s Noe’s mother next to him.

In the vows, both Noe and Olga vowed that they would be responsible for the care of any children that came from their union. I hadn’t come across this before, and thought it would be a good addition to weddings in the US or anywhere!

There were quite a few pictures taken with various family members:
