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.

May 24, 2007 — My friend Beverly recently emailed me about the retirement choices she and her husband are considering . From their present home in Plano, Texas, they traveled to the McAllen region, which is right on the border with Mexico. With her permission, I’m quoting her thoughts. That list of advantages to the […]

April 21, 2007 — This list would be different depending on my mood of the moment, but with that caveat, here we go… your list, or anyone else’s, would no doubt be different. Here are my top five favorite things about living in Mexico, where I do, near Lake Chapala: 1. The glorious climate. Oh, […]

March 3, 2007 — Kelly and I are very happy today. Our dear friends John and Amanda are driving with their daughter through New Mexico en route to Colorado, where they are from. I haven’t written much about this, but it’s taken over a year for John and Amanda to finalize the adoption of their […]

March 8, 2007 –This coming Sunday, March 11, the US and Canada will shift to Daylight Saving Time, 3 weeks earlier than in previous years as an energy-saving measure. I figured that Mexico would go along with it (“When the US sneezes, Mexico catches a cold” is a famous saying here), but I was wrong. […]

July 21, 2006 — Yesterday I got to chatting with a gardener here in the Lake Chapala area. He spoke some English, and so I asked him if he had worked in the United States. Yes, he had, and the priest at the Catholic church he attended there had arranged English lessons for many of […]

June 24, 2006 — It’s great to be in Crestone, Colorado, again, where we lived  before going to Mexico. We’re seeing old friends who feed us royally and take us into their lives. But would we want to live here again part of the year? It’s a question that’s never far from the back of […]

April 8, 2006 — The other night, we happened to watch a travel documentary on TV. It was filmed in Myanmar / Burma, and Kelly and I both enjoyed noticing similarities and differences from our experiences here in Mexico. For one thing, banana trees didn’t seem so exotic to us any more, now that we […]

Feb. 1, 2006 —  Today’s post is excerpted with his permission from a letter written by our good friend Peter, a 22-year-old journalist currently living in Oregon. When we built our house in Colorado, he spent three summers helping us and acquired the nickname of our teenage slave. He just spent a week with us […]

Nov. 4, 2005 —  “Aren’t you excited?” people have been asking me as our time set to go live in Mexico has been drawing closer. Actually, no, I have not been excited. I’m still overwhelmed by everything to get done for both our business and our move out of the house. But even beyond that, […]

June 18, 2005 — One of the delightful surprises we’ve had recently was discovering that some good friends of ours here in Colorado are looking into adopting a baby from Mexico. I asked my friends why Mexico, when you hear so much more about China and India. They explained that this program allows for getting […]
