This will be short.

Here we are, almost at the end of our wonderful Mexican/Guatemalan trip, and starting to think about heading home again. Our flight is booked for Tuesday, March 31, early in the morning. Our kind next door neighbour here, Danny, has offered to take us to the Guadalajara airport and Amy will be picking us up at the Toronto airport at 6:30 p.m. It all seems to be so easy. Much easier than some of the shorter trips that we have taken...

We knew that we would love being back in Ajijic and we have certainly enjoyed our 4 weeks here. Everything that we like doing, we can do here. Everything from climbing mountains, going to theatre performances, soaking in hot springs, eating international food, socializing at the local market, spending part of a sunny afternoon drinking Margaritas and Sangrias in a restaurant near the new malecan, going to art exhibits, etc. etc. We love having a weekly maid and gardener and appreciate the daily garbage pickup. Local bus transportation to Chapala and Jocotepec is easy to take and we love meeting both Mexican and Gringo friends on a daily basis.  We feel so pampered here.

Chris loves hiking in the mountains with the Tuesday Group Hiking Club. See if you can find him. Check this out:

As promised, I will not write a lot this time, but we will include a few photos of this beautiful place for you to look at. At the beginning of our blog, we set a few goals for ourselves and we have definitely met them. For those of you who have appreciated seeing our packing list, you should know that it worked out well. We did modify it in some ways, so when I get home, I will end this blog with the revised packing list just for those of you who would like to use it.

Note: Soon it will be Hasta Luego but not Adios to our friends, Lou,  Antonio and Joachim,  Janet and Don, Nancy and Herb, the Hiking group, Jill and John, Danny, Jerlinda in the Hole in the Wall, the 'Maestro' Carpintero, Jesus at David's and our other Mexican friends. Thank you!

Hello and Wow again!
You have had a wonderful winter in the south and done lots of interesting things. I like the hiking part best. Your photos have been fabulous to give the full sense of the colour, the people, the streets, the geography and animals in the area.

You should do a little talk when you come back and a slide presentation!

Cheers, Franki and Jeff.

Happy Birthday on April 1 - Connie!!! Getting up there - catching up to me!!
