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.

If you live in Mexico, you probably know most of what I am about to say… please add any advice in the comments! This article is about the joys and sorrows (sorrows, mostly) of using the mail in Mexico. Readers who don’t live here, please remember that surrealism is a strong element of Mexican culture! […]

Dec 3, 2007 – This morning I walked downtown (8 minutes) to our weekly tianguis or market here in San Juan Cosala, by Lake Chapala. I almost got attacked by a cat first thing. It was hissing at another cat or a dog under a truck and considered taking on my ankles. Narrowly escaping that […]

May 31, 2006 — Recently Kelly and I and a couple of friends went to Guadalajara on a chartered bus that goes in once a month. This was our first trip, and there were actually two buses full of foreigners. The deal is that you pay for the trip in advance at the LCS (Lake […]

May 18, 2006 — We realized this week that the old small Singer (as in sewing machines) refrigerator that came with the house just wasn’t getting things cold enough. When I put in the refrigerator thermometer that we had in our fridge in the motorhome, the freezer was fine but the refrigerator couldn’t get below […]

April 3, 2006 — A few weeks ago, my computer died. It had the grace to live long enough that I got *most* of the new files since my last backup, though I did lose a few photos. At the time, I blogged about my choices. I decided I wanted a widescreen Toshiba, as that’s […]

May 18, 2005 — Today Kelly and I went to Queretaro with our friend Rob. It was more for fun than anything, though we did plan to open an account with Lloyd’s, an investment firm that has many of the functions of a bank. Rob parked his car in the parking garage of the mall […]

May 12, 2005 — This morning, I left the house my husband Kelly and I are renting around ten, and went downhill to get some groceries. I was on a mission this morning. I’d heard that there was a lady who sold chicken, and I’d been told more or less where she was located. We’ve […]

Yesterday morning we went from Bernal to the nearby town of Ezekial Montes, to do some shopping. It has a large weekly tianguis, or market (also called mercado) and we needed some things we couldn’t find here in Bernal. First, we walked about 5 minutes to the bus stop and then we stood for maybe […]
