In a Pickle

We went to play pickleball again and we are both so sore tonight that ¬†we might be crying in the morning. ¬†It was really fun though and because of all the great pastries and flan and other postres (deserts) around here, we’re really glad we found a way to work off some calories. ¬†On the…

Pueblos Magicos

Pueblos M√°gicos¬†have been mentioned in quite a few posts. ¬†It seems that I overlooked explaining what that really means. There are 111 current pueblos (villages or towns) that have been deemed worthy of recognition and the title by the Secretary of Tourism of Mexico, in conjunction with various government agencies. ¬†These places have cultural, historical…

In Touch

While traveling, it’s not all fun and games. But some of it is fun and games. ¬†Take pickleball for example. It’s fun and it’s a game. ¬†This morning we found our way to a local group that plays pickleball four times a week. Little known fact about our history is that we once owned a…

Mexican Knockers

Guess who came up with today’s title? San Miguel de Allende is a beautiful and photogenic place. ¬†So many places to point the camera. ¬†And what was my subject for the day? Knockers. ¬†We walked all over town – my Fitbit says 6.7 miles and we certainly found lots of things besides knockers. ¬†Like the…

Wow, just Wow!

Today was a first. ¬†We were not sad to leave the town of Jalpan. ¬†While it was a quaint town and we enjoyed parts of it, there was a strange vibe there. The people were not very happy or friendly, and smiles in general were hard to find. ¬†That was literally the very first time…

Ensa -vs- Enchi & Jun√≠pero’s Missions

We don’t normally travel back to back days, but we made an exception this one time. ¬†We drove a short distance to another Pueblo Magico that was on our way to one of our main intended destinations. ¬†Our current “home” is in a small town called Jalpan which is in the north of the state…

Fantastical

We didn’t have to drive very far to reach our newest destination today. It was just over two hours from Tamosopo. ¬†We were lured to another Pueblo Magico, ¬† But of course on the way there, there were sights to be seen. First stop was an area that has bloomed immensely (bad pun intended) over…

Jump!

Tamasopo, San Luis Potosi – Day 2 La Huasteca is a region that is known for its beautiful geography and many outdoor activites. It is named after an indigenous group that had its heyday in about 700 – 850 AD. There are decendants of the Mayans – they were the northernmost relatives. The rivers and…

7 Million Mosquitos and The Bridge of God

As we pulled out of San Luis Potosi at 8 am, we were quickly confronted with rush hour traffic. ¬†Ky handled it like the driving pro he is, and the crazy ebb and flow was similar to other places we’ve been. ¬†He actually enjoys driving like that. ¬†Maybe that’s why we get along so well…

Cheating

Okay, so it had to happen sooner or later. ¬†I’m cheating! ¬†This is my very quick blog for the day. Finished reading “Orphan Train” by Christina Baker Kline. ¬†It made me cry lots of times and that’s really unusual for me. ¬†I highly recommend it, but only if you don’t mind crying. Visited the Regional…
