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.

oCT. 30, 2007 — Our good friend Peter recently flew down to Guadalajara from LA on a night flight, arriving at 5:30 AM. He stayed with us for a while, then went into the city for a month or so to take a course that will enable him to become a certified teacher of English […]

July 23, 2006 — Last year, it took us six or seven trips to Queretaro, from the town of Bernal where we were living, to get our FM-3 Mexican residence visas. They need to be renewed annually, and as the time approached this year, I was reluctant to go through anything like that again. People […]

June 30, 2005 — Every now and then someone has asked me to write in this blog about my opinions of Mexican politics. I haven’t done it because I don’t feel that I know enough. Also, the Mexican constitution prohibits foreigners from taking part in anything political… and that’s in there for the reason that […]

May 27, 2005 —  Here they are! As you can see, they are little booklets about the size of a passport. We got to the Instituto Nacional de Migracion in Queretaro just after nine this morning, having come in from our town of Bernal, about an hour’s bus ride away, with a 15-minute taxi ride […]

May 23, 2005 — This morning we got up early and walked across town to catch a bus to Queretaro, an hour away from the town of Bernal where we are living. The buses generally come on the hour, but they can come early, so we left our house at 7:30. As we walked up […]

May 7, 2005 — I wrote some posts not long ago about how things were flowing along so smoothly towards getting our FM3 Mexican visas. Well… Yesterday we went back into Queretaro, to the Instituto Nacional de Migracion. It’s an hour bus ride from our village of Bernal, but from the time we leave our […]

May 13, 2005 — Maybe the subtitle of this entry should be “The Human Face of Mexican Bureaucracy.” A week ago today, as I blogged, we went to the nearby city of Queretaro to the Instituto Nacional de Migracion. We thought our FM-3 visas might be ready, but instead we each got a letter saying […]

April 29, 2005 — Tuesday we had come back to our village from the nearby city of Queretaro, with fistfuls of application forms for our FM-3 Mexican visas and an imperfect understanding of exactly what we needed to do. Wednesday we spent the day doing it as best we could. Because we didn’t yet have […]

April 26, 2005 — As I described in my last post, yesterday we went to the nearby city of Queretaro to see about getting FM-3 visas, to be able to live and travel in and out of Mexico more easily. The day flowed easily, with help coming from unexpected sources. So this morning we were […]

April 26, 2005, Bernal Queretaro — Yesterday we went to the nearby city of Queretaro overnight, to do some shopping, get to know the city better, and see what we could do about getting FM-3 Mexican visas, to replace our FM-T tourist visas. With the FM-3 from Mexico, we will be able to stay in […]
