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 14, 2006 — Yesterday was a day celebrating the Virgin of Fatima. On a street not far from here in San Juan Cosala near Lake Chapala, mass was said outside and there were brass bands and a procession. Then it shifted to lively dance music, with fireworks at midnight.  This was in the Fatima barrio, or neighborhood.

We din’t go down, but we could hear it all just fine from inside our house. The people next door, a Mexican family from Guadalajara, were here and partying as well. A little after midnight, I went out to see if I could capture the sounds of the fireworks. They were over but here is about a 30-second file of the Mexican party next door. The wind was blowing in our trees as well. This is an mp3 file, and if you have a program that plays mp3s on your computer, clicking on the link should automatically start the party.

The party wound down around 2:30 AM.
