Mexico: Oaxaca – Part Two

November 23 – 27 Breakfast the next morning would become a reassuring and filling habit, a small buffet of fruit, muffins, bread, cereal, yoghurt and various things to drink.  You’d fill your plate and sit at one of the tables on the rooftop, the sounds of a waking city bubbling up from the street below.  […]

Mexico: Mexico City – Part Three

November 19 – 22 We left the Museo and found ourselves a place to sit and view the procession now coming down Ave. de la Reforma.  Much to Joanna’s delight, we’d hit that portion of the parade featuring legions of horses, the riders all decked out in costumes saluting their region, or the occupation they […]

On the Road Again, Part Six

August 24 – September 6 As planned, we left late in the morning for the drive up to Tioga Pass and Tuolumne Meadows.  The road is only open for a limited time each year due to heavy snow and is generally not accessible until late June or early July.  We’ve driven this way a few […]

Florida in February – Tampa, Part Two

The Holidays 2019, Part Three

December 20 – January 7 Christmas day passed in a blur, Taylor’s incredibly good cinnamon rolls and strong coffee fueling a frenzy of gift opening that concluded with a wild and hilarious white elephant exchange that seems to get better each year.  It had rained overnight and into the morning, but by the afternoon the […]

New Orleans 2019 – Part Three

October 19 – 24 With nothing formal on the agenda for Sunday we had a lazy morning as those who’d hit Igor’s the night before took a bit longer to greet the day that the others.  We decided to head back over to the French Quarter to walk around and find somewhere to eat, using […]
