  • A Step Back in TimeToday was a peak into the history of this area. We jumped on a bus at the Biblioteca to visit three haciendas. A hacienda is like the British estate system. Think Downton Abbey with a Spanish/Mexican twist. Posted by backtomexico in Back to Mexico | Jan 27, 2016

  • The Crazy House TourWoke up to the church bells. Have not figured them out. They’re coming from at least 2 different places. The first ones are usually about 6:30 a.m. I’m told that there’s 32 clangs. I haven’t Posted by backtomexico in Back to Mexico | Jan 24, 2016
  • The 2,000-year-old tree...Living to the ripe old age of 2,000 years is no small thing. Neither is the El Tule cypress tree, reputed to be one of the oldest and largest trees in the world. According to Wikipedia, El Tule " has Posted by millerburr in Leaving Ourselves Behind | Jan 24, 2016

  • ExtremesOff to a slow start this a.m. after a fix of the VCR and delivery of a toaster. The plan was to visit the much talked about Parque Juarez and then follow the guidebook walking tour in a circle Posted by backtomexico in Back to Mexico | Jan 20, 2016
  • Fast track to heaven...[center]Walk around Oaxaca for 15 minutes, and you will be entertained. There is so much rich material here, you don't even need to visit a museum or cathedral. The street will provide.[/center] [b][center]Assuming this rather New-Agey image Posted by millerburr in Leaving Ourselves Behind | Jan 19, 2016
  • Two Sides of the Same Coin Briefly missed the roosters waking us up, something that we're so used to in Mexico.  Seems SM has it's own alarm system.  At somewhere around first light, 7 a.m. the church bells harken us to prayer.  Since that didn't work, Posted by backtomexico in Back to Mexico | Jan 19, 2016

  • San Miguel de Allende & Bahias de Huatulco We will be leaving shortly for Mexico for a month. We will split our time between San Miguel de Allende and Bahias de Huatulco.
