  • From the ridiculous to the sublime:[center][/center] It would be easy to feel weighed down in a city that is almost 500 years old. All that stone, all those churches - it calls for a little levity, an Posted by millerburr in Leaving Ourselves Behind | Feb 11, 2015
  • Dear (Blog) DiaryDear (Blog) Diary, If you asked me last September if I thought we'd buy a house in Mérida, I would have answered, "When did we decide to go to Mexico?" We flew to Cancun because it was cheap, warm, and a Posted by woa in GandaTravel 2014-2015 | Feb 10, 2015

  • WEEK 5 WEEK 5 in Chicxulub Rehearsal for the fashion show went well and I love the new venue with the higher ceiling and plenty of fans to keep us cool; a more spacious change area would have worked better. Another successful year Posted by OhUiginn in Mexico 2015 | Feb 3, 2015

  • Hueva PescadosI wonder how many hours I have spent in workshops having people talk at me for hours. When I grow up, I will never go to another meeting again. I think the reason that teachers are required to Posted by Tampicoandlisa in Lisa in Tampico, Mexico | Feb 2, 2015
  • Toss the Tevas if you want to leave Morelia alive...I can't say I wasn't warned. Back in Melaque, when I admired Jennifer's snappy new sandals, she mentioned that ugly (tourist-type) footwear is looked upon with disdain by the locals. Since my shoe wardrobe for Mexico consists of plastic flip-flops, Posted by millerburr in Leaving Ourselves Behind | Feb 1, 2015

  • A guac smashing road trip...I think the thing that I love the most about travelling with Felix is that we both travel quite similar (very laid back, go with the flow) and are very prone to some very spontaneous snap decisions (that may or Posted by melpage in Not all those who wander are lost... | Jan 29, 2015
  • Michoacan state is dangerous - fact or fiction?We had been reading a lot of unnerving information about the volatile situation in the state of Michoacan, particularly around the borders, so we left Mazamitla and reached the border about 15 minutes later with considerable apprehension.
