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.

March 4, 2005 — Yesterday we rode over to a nearby town called Tequisquiapan with a Mexican friend from Bernal, where we are currently living.

We went to several stores, and while our friend and I were waiting for Kelly outside one of them, my friend teased me about the tshirt I was wearing. It says on it, “Baca Grande Library, Crestone, CO” and is one I designed when I was running the library. Well, my new friend had no comments on the library or Crestone parts, but he pointed out to me that “Baca Grande” means “big cow,” gesturing with his hands as if I had a bosum the size of a cow’s. We joked around about it for a while… and I’m not sure I am going to wear that tshirt in public much after this!

Kelly bought a little Seiko electronic translater that fits in his shirt pocket, and he’s found it useful.

Tequisquiapan, often called “Tequis” for short, is an upscale town popular for second homes with people from Mexico City. That may be part of why there is a health food store. We were just about out of green tea and tamari, and happily replenished both. We also got a nice loaf of whole wheat bread. Our friend got wild rice. Good resource!

And a very nice town. It’s mentioned in Choose Mexico as a possible place for Americans to live, though not as one of the main places.
