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.

Tripbase Blog Awards 2009

Aug. 12, 2007 – As I’ve written, in the year and a half that we’ve lived here, there have been a number of minor and not-so-minor thefts from our yard and our patio de servicio, which is the locked area with open metal gates where our laundry facilities, lawnmower, etc., are kept. We’ve never had anyone in the house, partly because it’s not easy to break into (bars on the windows) and a lot of the thievery is quick and opportunistic — but quite likely the sight of LarryDog barking and snarling from inside the windows makes the house unappealling.

We had lunch one day last week with a dog-loving friend, also originally from Colorado, who lives in the Lake Chapala area too. She commented that in her town here, Riberas del Pilar, there have also been more problems lately with things being taken. Her family has not had anything taken, and she said it’s because they have a Doberman and two other large dogs. She made a pretty strong case for large guarding-type dogs.

Well, we have usually had two dogs. It’s just been the last couple of years, with travel and all, that we’ve just had one. We’d already been talking about another dog, and now that we’re back from the US and have no travel planned, it’s a good time.

So when she emailed me about a 6-month-old Rottweiler puppy who neeeded a new home, Kelly and went to take a look. The rest is history, and I posted pictures of Lola, Kelly, LarryDog and me and that story on my dog training blog:

Meet our new Rottie puppy!

I will add that Lola and I are already very bonded. When I pop into the bathroom, she comes too and settles down companionably at my feet! I’ve been on a Rottweiler forum and discovered this desire to be your shadow is characteristic of the breed!
