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.

June 7, 2008 – Riberas del Pilar is in between San Antonio Tlayacapan and Chapala, and between Lake Chapala and the two-lane lakeside highway or carretera. It’s a rather suburban type area, in that it has no central plaza, nor is it densely built up. The homes there are often on larger pieces of land than you’ll find elsewhere. I know quite a few people who live there, and the church I go to sometimes — St. Andrew’s Anglican — is located there. So we get over that way.

One Sunday recently, we were there together and Kelly went for a walk while I was at church. First, here are a couple of walls he photographed. He was attracted to the texture of the red one. It had been plastered over something, rocks maybe, but he wasn’t sure what. Notice the mural on the second one.



He wandered down by the lake and got these photos. Herons or egrets? Kelly thinks egrets but isn’t sure. If you know, please comment. Whatever they are, these two photos below  are now up in our kitchen rotating art gallery.

    Size is difficult to determine by the photograph, but I am willing to bet it is a Great Egret.
