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.

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 at the private home being used for the event, each paid 100 pesos (about $9 US), signed in, and decided which walk to talk: the fast one of 4 km (about 2.5 miles), the medium one of 2 km, and the slow one of 1 km. There was also the option to be a philosopher and sit around!

My friend and her dog went for the fast option, while I chose the medium. I could easily go 4 km, but I’m not particularly fast. I didn’t know anyone else in the medium group, but people were friendly and so I chatted with a variety of other Americans. There may have been some Canadians among us too, but I didn’t notice that accent.

The walk was past a variety of attractive homes, and was over all too soon for me. Not really a lot of exercise! Then there was a pancake breakfast with bacon, fruit, coffee, fruit juice and the option of booze. Not my thing at mid-morning. We ate, chatted, applauded as prizes were awarded to the fastest in each category. Fun. I believe that the HHH walk every Saturday morning.
