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.

Nov. 23, 20008 — Okay, I know that isn’t exactly the way the old saying goes. But it’s what happened around here this afternoon. It’s the time of year when our lemon tree goes bananas. We have banana trees too but they are not going bananas in this cooler early winter season. It’s getting into […]

Nov. 23, 2007 – Our friend Peter stopped in recently for a couple of days. He’s just finished a month in Guadalajara at the International Teacher Training Organization, where he got TEFL-certified, to teach English as a second language. This school helps its graduates find jobs. Peter’s classmates are heading to Cancun, Chiapas, Puerto Vallarta, […]

March 3, 2006 — We have a small lemon tree in our yard and it is dropping at least one lemon a day on the ground. When we got back from our recent five-day trip, there were 15 lemons on the ground! We’ve been making lemonade, but can’t keep up that way. Marmalade is on […]

May 1, 2005 — “It’s the best Italian food we’ve ever eaten, including in Italy,” said a well-traveled American who lives in our small town of Bernal, not far from Queretaro in central Mexico. That was certainly recommendation enough, so last night Kelly, our friend Rob, and I went out to eat at Piave, an […]

April 14, 2005 — Every Sunday morning, there’s a small market in a plaza in the village we’re living in, Bernal, Queretaro, Mexico. I (or Kelly and I) grab a tote bag or two and some pesos and head over there around nine or so. If we arrive much later, the produce has really been […]
