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.

Sept. 23, 2008 — On a recent Saturday afternoon, Kelly and I sat on a rooftop in Ajijic, at the home of some friends who live right in the village. We enjoyed the company of a variety of other people, but there was another reason we spent most of the time on the roof rather […]

Relaxing after the walk. Oct 17, 2007 — On Saturday, a friend and I joined some other friends for a fundraising walk put on by the Hash House Harriers of Ajijic. We went to lower Chula Vista, an older and quite nice residential neighborhood just above the lake highway, between Ajijic and Chapala. We arrived […]

Sept 22, 2007 — We do errands out in nearby Ajijic regularly. Here’s the story of one day, today… Traffic in Ajijic was slowed to a crawl, not unusual along the carretera in Ajijic, but it will be even worse when the snowbirds arrive in another couple of months! We continued through the center of […]

May 19, 2007 — We recently had lunch with a friend in Ajijic, at the Secret Garden. This is a delightful vegetarian restaurant, one of our favorite places to eat. As the name implies, most of the tables are in a nice garden area in back of the building. One of my happiest memories of […]

Jan 13, 2006 — One Saturday afternoon recently, we went to Ajijic to go to a nursery, Flora Exotica on the corner of the carretera and the libramiento, or bypass road for going to Guadalajara without going through the town of Chapala.. After my outing a while ago to the strawberry and raspberry farms, we’re […]

  Oct 19, 2006 — A couple of months ago, I met an American naturopathic doctor who lives in nearby Ajijic and began doing a health-enhancing program under his supervision. I’m definitely feeling better from it — I’m drinking two quarts of water or so daily, and eating in a way that is designed for […]

Feb. 21, 2006 — This morning around 9 AM we took our little motorhome into Ajijic, about 15 minutes away, to do a variety of errands. (We don’t have a car here.) I thought that a description of “a day in the life of” would be interesting to people considering living in the Lake Chapala […]

Dec. 27, 2005 — This afternoon Kelly and I walked to Ajijic (pronounced ah-he-HEEK), the next town over from where we are staying in our RV. It took less than an hour to walk to the bus station for Guadalajara, where he would resume the consultation begun yesterday with a periodontist. I said goodbye to […]

The real estate market in and around Ajijic is very active, with many real estate firms working in the Lake Chapala area. Many of the agents speak English, and a good number of them are from the US or Canada. You will see Caldwell Banker, Century 21, and other firms you recognize from home, along […]

Ajijic, a small town on the shores of Lake Chapala and less than an hour from Guadalajara, has become home to many thousands of Americans and Canadians. The lakeside region is one of the most popular expat havens in the world. Why? It’s a very charming place, as my Ajijjic photo collage shows. (That page […]
