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

March 23, 2007 — While my sister-in-law Molly was here, we spent a couple of afternoons looking around at places for sale along the north side of Lake Chapala. Molly hadn’t been here before and she was surprised at how high a lot of the prices were for what you get.

We covered a lot of territory, from some of the small towns east of Chapala, to Chapala Haciendas, to the Ajijic area and west to our town of San Juan Cosala and just beyond it to El Limon. Molly’s photo below captures some of the feeling of many homes here:

We saw some fixer-uppers and some that were being sold furnished, where you could just move in. I sure got a sense of how much is on the market here. Like the US, things are selling more slowly than last year. While I saw a couple of things I liked, I came home feeling very grateful for our sweet little place!

I could mention some prices, but better to lead you to the source. The mlsmexico.com website is actually where we found our house last year. Choose Lake Chapala, and then just poke around!
