Dec 14, 2009 - Mexikansicher gehts nicht

Nach meinem Nickerchen kam Sandra auch recht bald und wir fuhren los rein nach Guadalajara, auch bekannt als die mexikanischste aller Staedte, ihr wisst schon alle tragen Sombreros, jeder reitet auf nem Esel und ballert dabei in die Luft, ansonsten pennen sie den ganzen Tag an nen Kaktus gelegt, wenn sie nicht grad Tequila saufen. So ne typische Stadt in Mexiko! Aber sie hat wirklich etwas zu bieten, denn sie unterscheidet sich voellig von Mexico City, was beweisst, dass man fuer ne Menge Trubel keine 25 Mio. Menschen brauch, 4 Mio. reichen...

Nov 10, 2009 - We Visit the Hot Springs for Therapy

Today I went on my first outing. After visiting the orthopedist for a couple of check-ups he said I should visit the balneario and hot springs at San Juan Cosala to start getting some water therapy. Leo Brandon, my caregiver, and Jim Kaye and I packed our bags and spent a few hours in the thermal waters at San Juan.

Oct 8, 2009 - Here We Go Again--Another Hip Replacement

Deja vu! One year ago I checked in to Clinica del Pilar to get a hip replacement. Here I am again getting the right hip replaced this time. Jim Kaye kindly drove me to the hospital and he will pick me up on Sunday, four days from now if all goes well, when I am discharged.

Jul 3, 2009 - Back Home to Ajijic

I left Bacalar at 7 AM on the bus headed for Playa del Carmen. Five hours later I was in Playa del Carmen headed for the airport on a shuttle. Because I remembered to use my INAPAM Tercera Edad senior citizen discount card, the bus fare was half price. By 3 PM I was winging my way back to Guadalajara and home to Ajiic.

Today I boarded a plane in Guadalajara headed for Cancun. I'll play innkeeper at a friend's 7-room guesthouse on Lake Bacalar for the month of June, Casita Carolina. go to www.casitacarolina.com It takes a long time to travel to Bacalar.

Jan 31, 2009 - Guadalajara & Tlaquepaque

Guadalajara & Tlaquepaque– Day 3 Short Version We see Orozco’s murals and brave the HUGE Mercado (bigger than a football field), then take a tour bus to Tlaquepaque to see the dancers and Mariachi Bands at El Parian, and have a memorable dinner at the Adobe Bistro where Victor sings with a trio who play Mariachi with a Jazz influence. Long Version It’s our last day here, so we’re going to try to do it all and hope we don’t pay for it later! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast at the hotel (pancakes…we felt like comfort food) then off to...

Jan 30, 2009 - Guadalajara – Day 2

Guadalajara – Day 2 Since we are meeting our friend Maryloly at 1:30, we decided to get an early start and see some of the city. So off early to breakfast at Taqeueria Los Faroles where we, once again, order way too much food. We both have tacos and horchata (a sweet milk drink that is very good). Our first stop is the Regional Museum of Guadalajara (built in the late 17th-century) which houses a full Mammoth skeleton, an archaeological section with reproductions of burial tombs, and original pottery, carving and jewellery from...

Jan 29, 2009 - Enroute & Arriving in Guadalajara

En route to Guadalajara After a final breakfast on the beach, our departure to Guadalajara is early (8:15). It’s difficult to say farewell to old and new friends who have made our stay a real pleasure. But away we must … Our first stop in La Peñita (it’s market day) to buy a few final items: coffee and peanut brittle for friends in Ajijic. We are, at last, on the road at 9:15. The road along the coast to Las Veras is easy, but we have forgotten how full of curves the road is to Compestela. However, there is no other way to get where we are...

Jan 16, 2009 - TLAQUEPAQUE (say that after 2 drinks)

The B&B here was outstanding................even the bathroom was FABULOUS (yes, I have pictures), but they were full for the next night, so we had to move a few blocks away. Tlaquepaque is a MAJOR shopping area for furniture. So the galleries are outstanding. We met a couple from Calgary who just bought in Huatulco and were here to buy a whole house full of furniture. Many great sculptures line the streets, as do great restaurants. Met a great couple from San Francisco, he just retired in the education field and she has authored a Quilt...

El Camino a Mexico

Jan 12, 2009 - Through the Sierra Madre

Left Mazatlan and drove about 30km. to Roserio to see our Lady of Roserio Church with the solid gold wall..................it is just a shock to see something like that, in a tiny town (but there was much mining done here, and at one time it was the richest in the area. It is also the home of famous Opera singer Lola Beltran, and her museum is here (no one there spoke English, but we did fine and really enjoyed the three people working there). Then on to the cemetery, through the creaking gate, as a rat ran passed...................needless...

Dec 15, 2008 - Guadalajara Revisited

Anil and I decided we wanted to travel with Audrey back to Guadalajara to see her off on her flight. We welcomed the chance to see a little more of the city and to stay once again in the charming Casa Villasanta. This time, I managed to stay awake as we passed through the city of Colima with its towering volcano nearby. I had heard that there are two volcanoes, one regularly active and the other not. You can imagine my surprise when we spotted smoke just beginning to rise from the peak as I raised my camera to take a photo. I snapped dozens...
