Sharon and I went to Zihuatinejo and Taxco, Mexico for 10 days after Christmas. Our daughter and son-in-law joined us for most of the time. My travel routine gets much easier as the years go by: wake up and find coffee, read, swim, go to dinner, sleep. I finished a wonderful biography on Ike Eisenhower by Stephen Ambrose and the new book, “Wherever I Wind Up: My quest for Truth, Authenticity, and the Perfect Knuckle Ball,” by R.A. Dickey. Both were great reads!
The trip wouldn’t have been complete without a balcony breakfast overlooking snow mobiling, sledding, and ice-skating…in the main square of Mexico City
Taxco is an old silver city, aka: a “colonial city” in the mountains. Very old, completely European in feel, timeless….
Nothing too deep going on here…just waiting for the caffeine to kick in….
Uncrowded, doesn’t feel like an episode of MTV is happening outside, but big enough to provide some great dining and recreation.
The coolest part of my vacations are that this really great, drop-deal gorgeous lady always shows up and hangs out with me, wherever I go! I’ve met up with this one all over the place!
How’s this for a place to start the day?!
I hang out in these cathedrals whenever we travel–since I don’t speak the language, I’m never bothered by noise, and love the atmosphere of peace and reverence. Nice place to go pray and read in the mornings!
Very cool restaurant in Taxco.
Me…blending right in, I’m sure!
