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.

Dec. 9, 2005 — Today’s been a layover day in San Carlos, just outside of Guaymas.

(Before you envy me too much, it did include some dentistry. A crown of mine had come out yesterday, and I found an English-speaking dentist a short walk from our campground. I was in and out in just a few minutes. )

For dinner, we went across the street to a seafood restaurant just before dark. I had a delicious shrimp caldo or soup, and Kelly had a perfectly sauteed fish filet with a very fresh Mexican salsa.

But even better than the food was the music. A large table of Mexicans, from their late teens to their 50s or more, were enjoying themselves while two silver-haired singers/guitarists sang one love song after another. I particularly liked it that one of the musicians was a woman. Both she and the man had lovely voices, as did some of the people at the table. The music went on the whole time we were there, maybe an hour. The songs were mostly love songs and judging by the amount of singing along, they were well-known favorites.

Such magic moments! We listened to the music combining with the gentle lapping of waves, while the sky darkened. Such times of alegria, or joyous liveliness, seem to come more often in Mexico. That’s a big part of why I’m so glad to be back in Mexico.
