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.

October 9, 2007 —

The weekly Tuesday tianguis, or outdoor market, was in full swing today, it seemed, though I didn’t see them killing live chickens on the corner — and didn’t miss it either!

The tianguis used to be on the plaza but some months ago it was moved to the block going east of the plaza, below the church. Much of what is sold is clothing:

There are also housewares, flowers, plants, small items like watch batteries, DVDs and CDs (probably all bootlegged), and more. We get almost all our produce from Carlos and Blanca,  regular produce vendors. They get up around 3 AM and drive in to Guadalajara from their home in Chapala, to the huge wholesale market in the big city, and their produce is way fresher than what we usually see in any store around here. The vendors who I have spoken with come from the local towns.

This man was hand-cranking two buckets of ice cream. The dirt behind him is part of the reconstruction going on nearby, after the waterspout.

These people from nearby Jocotepec had a most attractive display. I don’t eat such things because my digestive tract is on the fussy side.
