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 3, 2006 — After eight days, town water is trickling back into our aljibe, or water storage tank. It feels good, and also we are happy to see how well we did while no water was coming in. It’s been over 12 hours now that the tank has been refilling.

I bet a lot of the local people are really relieved. We are always quite careful with dishwashing, showers, etc., having lived in dry places a lot, so with our storage capacity being without water didn’t really impact our lifestyle in the house. Not so for people with less storage.

Did it drive us bonkers? We had some bad moments but I find the electrical outages far more frustrating, since online is practically my lifeblood. Even there, being without power yesterday didn’t bother me nearly as much as it had two weeks ago. Guess we’re getting used to being here. Last night we had a little rain and it didn’t knock out the power, a good sign.

Even our cat Misty is settling in well. She had one day a couple of weeks ago when she hissed at our dog about 20 times. The poor guy couldn’t even get near me without her jealousy flaring up. I had a little talk with her about living in a family,  and it seemed to help. Also, she loves her very own cat door, made by cutting a square in a window screen, and she mostly stays right near the house when she’s outside. I close her in by the late afternoon.
