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.

April 5, 2005 — It was very busy here, from the Equinox celebration through Easter and beyond. Mexican tourists flocked to Bernal:

Here’s a view of the charming central plaza, called the jardin, which Kelly took in a quiet moment from upstairs in one of the buildings.

Our friends the Estrella family from Tequisquiapan, about whom I’ve blogged before, came to Bernal one Saturday afternoon. After we had a delicious meal of gorditas in a little cafe near the jardin, Luis and Kelly played music for a while on our upstairs patio.

And here’s a shot taken at the same time, with Andrea, two of their boys and a friend, and our view of the town. The vertical line in the picture is our hot water heater overflow. Our hot water heater is not automatic, and has to be turned on and off as needed, though we keep the pilot lit.

We have been transforming our ground-floor patio quite a bit, whitewashing the walls with colored whitewash:

Here are the walls with our landlord’s tall ladder, which Kelly used to do the tops of the walls, and a young cat who has come into our home. She is buddies with our landlord’s cat and is in the process of learning how to get into the open living room next door, via the flat roof. Our landlord will care for her when we go back to the United States.

It’s definitely spring here. I was going to contrast our spring with a snowy picture a friend sent me from Colorado last week, but I couldn’t find it on my computer. He said it was supposed to get up to 45 that day. We were having a cold spell and it got down to 45 that night.
