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.

September 18, 2006 — Mazamitla had quite a few souvenir-type stores. You had to look at a lot of cutesy stuff to find good things, but they were there. If I often served salad to a dozen people, I would have bought a beautiful wooden turned bowl, but I passed on that. My best find was a 35-peso foot massager. After I paid for it, the woman who ran the shop let me take her picture:

Once home, I laid out my purchases on our indoor dining table: a huge bottle of homemade pickles, the foot massager, and a couple of wooden spoons. The table, by the way, is made of pieces of marble. My mother probably turned over in her grave when I bought the pickles, as who knows just how they were preserved!
