Oaxaca, California, New York, Italy, Spain

June 17th, Coronado,

A year has passed since l visited Oaxaca, California, New York, Italy and Spain.  Somewhere in the clouds, all that l wrote about a year ago has been lost and so now trying to recreate the experience from memory is the challenge l  am feeling l might be able to here goes..

Oaxaca, of all the years l have traveled in Mexico still continues to be one of my favorite places to visit.  l could write using all the touristy glitz that is written about Oaxaca but in the case of Oaxaca, much of it is true.  Utley and l left Vallarta and drove the coast route all the way to Puerto Escondido before crossing the mountains to drop into the valley of Oaxaca.  Oaxaca City is a great place to stay and has so many interesting sites.  We were fortunate in having several months to explore the city and at the same time visit the many different areas around the valley.  Oaxaca hands down has the most variety of handmade, hand painted, craft, artistic, talented, persons that l experience through out Mexico.

Whew, am l really back on my own blog??

l have no idea even where to begin, the winter season in San Pancho flew by so fast.  lt was a winter season filled with friends, friends, new and old, party, eating until l went on a and creative, artistic, talented amigos through out the pueblo to keep me jumping from one event to the next.  Needless to say l would not want to miss out on a darn thing going on from the wonderful morning walks with Glenda and Canela, to the parties at night with Lorman, Michel, Utley, Joel, Gloria, Roberto,  Sandra, Beto  and anyone else who can keep up with the pace we seem to have living on the coast of Mexico.

Life is just so different and enjoyable for so many reasons, as l sit here in Coronado thinking about my wonderful time in Mexico,  l realize this morning l was overwhelmed with emotion crossing the Coronado Bridge into San Diego.........the scenery was spectacular, last night the full moon..........will be here in Southern California for about another ten or so days before l travel to Bend Oregon.........
