Hola Mexico! 2010

In January and February, my husband Jeff and I, spent 4 weeks exploring Mexico and learning just what a large and varied country it really is. We traveled on the ETN buses - comfortable, affordable and incredibly convenient. We started in Mexico City, with its amazing parks and the Anthropological Museum.

We moved on to the colonial and indigenous cities of P√°tzcuaro and Morelia. I was dazzled by the local crafts there. We saw Quer√©taro in the midst of a huge rainstorm and mixed with the ex-pats in San Miguel de Allende. 

Our favorite city for color and charm was Guanajuato. 

We ended with a relaxing week among the tourists in beautiful Puerto Vallarta.


Sketching was wonderful. It always gives me insight but on this trip, it helped me make friends. I almost always had a Mexican companion, adult or child, who would sit near me either quietly watching or chatting. It provided my best moments of contact with local people.
