Ruth's highlights of our past six months (Part 2)

Okay, it's on to Part 2 of our past six months in Mexico.  We explored many new places as well as a few of our favourites.  It is really hard to pick some of these as we have so many wonderful experiences but we don't want this to go on forever for you so I'll try to keep it to a minimum.

Our facebook followers already know that we felt an earthquake yesterday. There was a 6.4 earthquake (originally reported as 7.0) about 200 kms south of here late yesterday afternoon.

Oil change

You know things are slow when the most exciting topic of the day is Sherman's oil change! I last changed the oil towards the end of September while in Texas, about 6,000 kms (3,700 miles) ago.

Some of you have had questions or comments regarding the couchsurfing program we have used recently to stay with local hosts in Mexico City and Las Vegas.

Here's an interesting article published in this months "New Yorker" magazine online....

Reflecting on the past six months

We had a GREAT winter! Of course it didn't start off so well with the death of our faithful traveling companion, Whiskey. That was definitely not a highlight. But the rest of the winter went according to plan.

Food budget

We went and did our weekly grocery shopping yesterday and we posted on facebook that we spent $22.68. It actually turned out to be $23.28 because I forgot about some celery that we bought at a different store! Anyhow, readers Roxanne and Susan seemed like they want a little more detail.

Planning for Chicago!

Our next trip is to Chicago. We fly there from Guadalajara on May 7 for a three to four night stay. I was looking at some different attractions and was hoping to get opinions from anybody who has been there.

They don't make it easy!

So I tried to install the web famous Facebook "like" button here yesterday. Turns out it's not a simple matter. I managed to get it installed so that it showed up at the end of every post, but I don't want people to be able to like the post, I want people to be able to like Travel with Kevin and Ruth, if they so choose.

Blog changes

I'm going to make some changes to the blog. First thing gone is the Blogger "Followers" button on the right side. For whatever reason, this button and the followers weren't showing up anyhow. A Blogger "glitch" and despite trying to figure out why it wasn't there, I couldn't fix it. So it's gone.

March expenses

March turned out to be the most expensive month of our six months in Mexico, but that was expected due to our one week in Mexico City, and our one week in Las Vegas. Total expenses came to $1,881.08 for March, but $797.60 of that was travel related in order to actually get to those two destinations.

A fiesta...again!

Yesterday morning, Barb was going into town so we hopped in for the ride. Saturday is market day and we needed to stock up on fruits and veggies for the week. We went to the market and walked the 30 minutes or so back to the campground.
