Our reservations in Oaxaca got pushed back a couple of days due to confusion at their end so that got us thinking, usually a dangerous thing. We are running slower this year and are nowhere near as deep into Mexico as we have been in previous years by this time. That is OK, we are in a beautiful part of Mexico and are poised to visit Oaxaca, the only Mexican State we have never been to. The Mexico map in the side panel will soon be completely colored in. We will be in Oaxaca for a week starting on February third.
Norma is having a hard time shaking her cold and is very much enjoying just sitting around and I must admit saving the $100+ per day we put out in gas and tolls while we travel is nice as well. So, we will stay here another two weeks or so, one week of which we will spend in Oaxaca. We will then head east to Puebla for a week or two and explore around there before starting to head north (sob). We have been in the Puebla area many times but have only been into the city once. There is much to see around here so it will be nice to stop and smell the bougainvillea's for a change.
We will forego visiting the Yucatan this year. This will let us continue our slow pace and will put us back in the USA a little earlier than usual so we can spend a bit if time in Texas. Our friend Rae is there right now and Reading her Blog has reminded me of how much we like that State. I need a few feeds of Gulf shrimp and oysters! Life is slower this year, but still Good! We are not sure where we will end up in Texas but it will be somewhere on the Gulf Coast, maybe near Corpus Christi.
Late posting today. The Internet has been down most of the day.
