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.

June 27, 2008 – When our friends Janet Woodman and Kizzen Laki were here from Colorado back in January, Janet did this watercolor from the malecon in the city of Chapala, looking west along Lake Chapala.

I was going to put it up on the blog then, but somehow it slipped by me. I just now noticed it on my hard drive and said, "Aha!" So here it is.

I sometimes wish I could draw or paint; Janet says she gets a lot of pleasure from it. (She did add that she had people watching her work over her shoulder much of the time in Chapala.) I’ve even wondered about taking a very interesting intensive art class, given mainly in the winters by local resident Karl Barnhardt, teaching you to draw no matter what you know to start. In just a week! But then I thought, I don’t have time for all the writing I want to do, better stick to what I already do. At least for now.

    That brought back memories. I know that spot well. We lived in Ajijic and later San Antonio Tlayacapan.
