On the Road Again  Posted on 03/13/2012
No new photos now, but I wanted to post an update to our adventures in San Antonio. We spent three rainy days in the hotel without a car, eating at the Denny's next door, waiting for the windows on our car to be repaired. When we got...

Carnival!  Posted on 02/22/2012
Yesterday was Fat Tuesday and the annual Carnival parade in Ajijic. There is definitely a transvestite theme in this parade, along with kids dressed up in carnival masks throwing flour at everyone. There was lots of beer consumed, little...

    Hello! I found your blog on expat-blog and had to come take a look. I am also a Mainer, who the long way around, has ended up in Jalisco. I'm in Tlaquepaque, and just visited Chapala for the first time today. I'm teaching English at a private language school here, and absolutely love it. I have been teaching in Asia for years, and although the money is no comparison, the quality of life is fantastic. Best, Shanna
