Announcing Vegetarian in México

I have been busy these last weeks working on a new website for vegetarians in México.  I hope you will take a look around and give me your comments.  Please be kind, though!  I have a long list of ideas and content that I will be adding over time.  There will be multiple posts daily for a while at least.  I’ve created a Facebook page too that you can like and where I will post when there is new content...

A Week in Puebla

A few years ago Paul spent two weeks in Puebla attending language school, and he told me over and over how much he knew I would like it. So when it came time to plan a summertime getaway, a week in Puebla was just the ticket. We flew in to the México City airport and caught a bus to Puebla. A couple of hours later we were getting settled in our nice Air B & B in Centro Historico. We...

Guadalajara instead of Mazatlan’s Carnaval this year

We were thrilled with our choice. We...

Our...

A week in Guanajuato

Guanajuato< City had been on Paul’s wish list for a long time – I had spent a day there when traveling with my daughter-in-law’s family (before she was my daughter-in-law) in about 1994 or 1995.  So it was high time for the two of us to get there together and explore for a longer period of time. We bussed to Guanajuato on the luxury bus line ETN, dozing, watching a movie, and reading for the six hour trip from México...
