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

Friday, August 25, 2006 — When I went to Tlaquepaque recently, we were driven by Victor Cueto Valencia, a good friend of some of the women I went with. (He drives his van on custom trips as one of the businesses he is in, and he is a very good driver. His website is www.gdlmexicotours.com) Victor, who is from Tlaquepaque, took us by a project he’s in the middle of: remodeling an historic old building which he owns. These shots are all taken in the interior of the building, including the courtyard.

UPATE 2009:  The remodel is finished and Victor turned it into a really charming Tlaquepaque B&B. The link takes you to his website.

Let’s start with Victor himself:
The courtyard shows work at various stages.

I was so impressed with the way the workman carried the bricks up the ladder that I came in for a closer look:
This lovely old adobe wall is being festooned with objects:
And here’s a close-up of the wall:

This is part of an antique door. The white plaster will come off later.
Victor glances back just before we leave.
