About to Hit the Road Again

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

Our faithful readers will have noticed that we haven’t been updating our blog very much lately.  We’ve been in Ajijic for nearly 6 weeks and have only posted a few blog entries.  The first week we were here we enrolled William and Julian in a pre-school here and we’ve had every morning (Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 1PM) without William and Julian.  It really hasn’t been for lack of time that we haven’t been writing blog entries – simply laziness.  It had been a long time since we have had so much “free” time and we’ve really enjoyed it.  The main thing we accomplished was to become totally addicted to the TV show House, MD.  We downloaded and watched all 3 seasons in less than 4 weeks.  That is a total of 70 episodes.  If you realize that we have been watching that much TV it is no wonder we have not had any time to write blog entries.  And even if we had gotten around to writing, what would we have written about other than Dr. House?  We haven’t been doing anything else except watching that show?

The morning we were supposed to go to Guanajuato Matthias was still just tired of traveling and he decided he didn’t want to go.  In the end we decided to split up, he took Julian and William and I were off to Guanajuato.

Riding the bus is very exciting for a 4-year old.  There are lots of buttons and knobs to turn, there was a TV, they gave us free sandwiches, drinks and there was even a bathroom on the bus.  William took a backpack full of books, extra clothes and 3 pairs of shoes (something I didn’t notice until we were unpacking in Guanajuato).  The bus ride was 4 hours, a little too long for both of us, but we still had a great time and it was nice to be able to spend some time just him and I.

The Old Riviera

Friday, June 8th, 2007
When you drive into Ajijic there is a sign that says “Riviera Alta.”  You might think it means the OLD Riviera since aside from the dozen Mexicans that live in this town all you see here are ex-pat ... [Continue reading this entry]

Mexico City

Saturday, May 19th, 2007
Wow, what a city! When we started our trip a lot of people warned us not to go to Mexico City, because it’s dirty, chaotic, polluted and dangerous and we decided not to go. Then again we ... [Continue reading this entry]

My Take on Taxco

Friday, May 11th, 2007
Matthias and I agree on this – Taxco is one of the neatest cities we’ve seen in Mexico.  It did kind of suck that it took us so long to get there from Cuernavaca, but once we were ... [Continue reading this entry]

Thank You, Taxco

Monday, May 7th, 2007

On several occasions in this blog I have mentioned that I am getting tired of seeing more stuff. I have seen more things in the last 9 months that I ever will be able to process. And ... [Continue reading this entry]

Oaxaca, Oaxaca

Monday, May 7th, 2007

Once we left Xpu-Ha we had a lot of driving ahead of us to get off the Yucatan.  Our next major stop was the city of Oaxaca located in the state of Oaxaca, which was about 1500 ... [Continue reading this entry]

My Beloved Xpu-Ha

Sunday, April 29th, 2007
Of all of the places we’ve visited so far the campsite at Xpu-Ha has to be one of my favorites.  It is also one of the places where I could imagine spending a lot of time each year.  ... [Continue reading this entry]
