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

A friend who used to live here in Mazatlan offered to house and pet sit during Carnaval and Paul and I jumped at the chance to get away.  We do love Carnaval but thought it would be fun to get out of town for a change.  We decided to spend a week in Guadalajara, booking a rental in Colonia Americas.  The Americas and Lafayette areas are very lively and fun areas to explore.

August Visit to Tepoztlán, Morelos

Paul and I headed to Mexico City in August for a couple of weeks visiting family. Our youngest granddaughter Consuelo wasn’t back in school yet and our older granddaughter Erica is doing a semester abroad and living in Mexico City with my son and his family. So that’s a two-fer that we couldn’t pass up! (Two granddaughters at once, get it?) We spent the first three days of our trip in Mexico City. We explored downtown, got a tour of...
