A Quick Trip to the DF

Paul and I took a quick trip to México City to visit family just before Christmas. It was just a short trip of five days but it was absolutely fantastic. Thanks to competition in the airline business between Mazatlán and México City our flight was much less expensive than usual, too.  (We flew Volaris.) So in the late afternoon on Thursday our taxi pulled up in front of their place in Colonia Roma. We hadn’t seen them since Easter, when...

Wow, a whole month has passed since my last post! I had such good intentions – truly I wanted to be blogging more frequently but I was just having so much fun! What was I up to? Here we go, in no particular order… Paul and I bought a new car. We got tired of our little Honda Fit, wanting something that felt a bit roomier and was higher up off the road.

I got back Saturday from a week visiting family in Washington State. I had a wonderful time, of course!  I started off with an inexpensive direct flight from Mazatlán to Vancouver, BC on Westjet Airlines.  This was my first time flying Westjet, and I loved it. During the summer they fly from here to Vancouver and back once a week, on Saturdays.  During the rest of the year they have more flights.  I paid about $250 less than my usual...
