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

Jan. 1, 2009 – The title above is a translation of an article in El Charal, the weekly Lake Chapala newspaper.  In this article, a dozen people were asked about “las esperanzas de un año nuevo.” I enjoyed reading their comments.

Several men were here in Mexico for the holidays and would be returning soon to their work in the US. One said he’s lived in the US for 21 years, another said since 1972, while others didn’t specify. All of them hoped that work in the US would improve in 2009.

Practically everyone had the same wish for Mexico, that the economic situation would improve. A local gardener wished that this new year would be “lleno de salud y trabajo, que es lo mas importante.” – full of health and work, which are the most important things.

An engineer at the University of Guadalajara commented on both the recession and on “calentamiento global,” or global warming. A middle school teacher spoke of his wishes for children who lack basic necessities.

I was telling my husband about the article when I realized I’d like to share it more fully, so here you are. And whatever happens in our world, I wish you, reader, a year full of health and meaningful activity, whether it’s technically “work” or not!
