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.

May 12, 2006 — Two women I met recently, a Canadian and an American, picked me up this afternoon and showed me some places that they and other foreigners have found around San Juan Cosala. We explored a meat market, a flower shop, a seamstress, a bakery, and other shops around town. We stopped in at Anita’s Animals, a shelter for many cats and dogs. Then we drove steeply uphill through the Raquet Club, an upscale gated development, and turned to go to the Monte Coxala ecological spa.

What an amazing place! It’s still being improved on and expanded. We met Lola, the manager who speaks excellent English, and she showed us around. Here, she’s on the left and Jeannie and Ann are on the right.

Yes, that’s an Olmec-style head in the background. Here he is again:

You can take a hot bath inside his head.

And here is the view out over Lake Chapla to the other shore from up there:

Lola gave us brochures describing the many treatments they offer there. Hot springs, massages, facials, and more. How will I pamper myself first? It’s a hard choice but at the moment I am most curious about the choco-therapy which would, among other things “give the skin softness with a velvety effect.” When I eventually get there, I will gloat, I mean report, here.
