Wow, its way past time to have a second posting on our travel journal. Tomorrow Mike will be celebrating his 74th birthday, or maybe trying to hide it!

We had a super time over Xmas and New Year with the company of Simon and Mercy coming in from Calgary and David & Christine with a direct flight from Gatwick, England to Puerto Vallarta, new service this year. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny for the whole time. We kept the fact that Simon and Mercy would be here from Liz’s brother and he was so surprised when he saw them in the casita right next to where they were staying. Great to see, they hadn’t seen each other for 10 years.

Family meals were most enjoyable in our new dining tent which helped keep any flies or bugs away. Liz deserved a great big ‘thank you’ for her efforts in organizing meals, social activities, etc.

After Simon & Mercy departed for Calgary, the four of us took a trip to the city of Guadalajara, staying right in the centre of the ‘area historica’. Lots of walking, double-decker bus riding and trying out various Mexican restaurants. On the way back to Lo de Marcos, we took in the town of Tequila taking a tour of the Jose Cuervo tequila brewery and of course tasted the product.

After all the relatives returned to their homes just after New Year, we have been settling in to ‘normal’ life here in Lo de Marcos. The weather so far this season has been wonderful with the occasional humid day to slow us all down. A dip in the warm Pacific Ocean, a cerveza under the palm trees in a beach chair, usually does the trick.

Happy New Year.

Hope you enjoy the photos.

Mike & Liz
