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.

January 2005. — We are meeting more Canadians than Americans on this trip. I asked one of the Canadians who has been all over Mexico for the past couple of months if he had noticed this trend too. He said yes. I wondered why, and he said bluntly, “Because Americans are scared ****less.”

I was thinking that the weather was the main reason. It’s likely a mix of many reasons, but there is a trend in Mexico that the proportion of Canadians in expat areas like Lake Chapala has risen quite a lot compared to people from the U.S.

A German couple commented on how friendly Americans are. They said that they were questioned closely when they flew into an Eastern U.S. city from Europe, “but it was done in a friendly way. They were just doing their job. German officials are much more brusque.” They had traveled through the United States and encountered only friendliness everywhere. Nice to hear.
