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.

November 2007 __ Our friend RobertoThe other day, Kelly and our good friend Roberto Villa Lobos took a long hike up into the mountains. They walked from our neighborhood up through the development called the Raquet Club, and continued upward on ejido (community) land. Roberto had many happy childhood memories of helping his grandfather with cattle up there. He told Kelly that for years he went up there practically every day. Now, it gives him a sense of peace to be out in nature, and he admitted that not too many of his family shared that feeling!

They got a good look at a new gash in the mountains, caused by the tromba (waterspout) that hit above our area a couple of months ago. This picture shows how close to the top of the mountains the waterspout had come. We had thought it came lower down.

They passed very close to a calf who appeared to be several days old. It didn’t move at all. They began to say what a pity that it had died, but when Roberto leaned over and touched it, it jumped up and bounded away!


There is a dam up there. Here a bull walks alongĀ  beside it, with Lake Chapala and the other side of the lake visible in the background.
