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.

Heavy equipment working on the carretera, the one highway in and out of town:

You’re never too young to help out:

And grownups were busy too:

Aid and medical workers had a number of booths set up around the plaza. In the background, supplies await distribution under the Ayuntamiento (City Hall) porch. In the lower left there is a glimpse of some attractive new artwork recently painted on the cement.
