I’m 98% finished putting photos in my travel journal. I somehow squeezed so many between the pages. I’m looking forward to turning my attention towards my visual journal and a few other crafty ideas I’ve got brewing. I wish I could multi-task, but alas I am unable.
Though when I close the pages of my Budapest travel journal I’ll be satisfied knowing I’m COMPLETELY finished. Done! Finito!
Here: I present one snowy cat on an autumn colored rug.
and here… I present some little pics of the cozy abode that awaits me at 7500 feet elevation in the southern highlands of Mexico (!) The scene of my next travel adventure which I’ll be embarking on in about 9 weeks. Coming with?
I’ve mentioned my fabulous and interesting friend DOROTHY before. She lives in the coastal village of Cambria with her long-time companion & partner. 2 extraordinary women living by the seaside. Dorothy has just started blogging again, on what I hope will be a more regular basis. Myself and the rest of the world want to know what thoughts are tumbling around in that inquisitive colorful mind of hers.

Mary Ann, you’re going to have a WONDERFUL time in San Cristobal! What a gorgeous, fabulous destination! Please take in an extra big breath of clean, crisp, high altitude air for me while you’re there. And thanks so much for the introduction to your friend Dorothy’s blog! I just spent a very pleasant 10 minutes there, and I’ve fallen in love with her kitchen and her geraniums. Cambria is another of my favorite places. Now after reading these posts, I’m off to my arm chair to travel in my dreams….

Ms. Moss. I’m definitely there. I love San Cristobal de las Casas. Be sure to visit Na Baloom and take a tour of the fabulous house of Trudie Bloom. Also, if you have time, read Cuidad Real by Rosario Castellanos. It’s short stories about San Cristobal and the villages surrounding it. Don’t forget Chamula and Zinacantan, two villages not far from San Cristobal. Can’t wait to read your take on the city. Toni
enjoy your trip to san cristobal! that place holds many dear memories of a summer i spent there with my two best friends after my junior year of college. it forever changed my life. we were young and foolish (best combination!) and full of dreams and hopes. we went as human rights observers and stayed in a zapatista village. we danced to live music, ate fresh buttered corn in the zocalo, traveled by bus and vw taxis, and met many wonderful people along the way. it is a very magical place. the very center of the universe, i think.
Greetings Moss Cottage, I’ll be there can not wait Mr. Winters starting to come cool and damp hurts my bones ugh! So a little heat some latin music and wonderful foods will be most wanted!!!
Have a wonderful day say hey to everyone and hugs,
I have been to San Cristobal de las Casas…what a fabulous, ancient village. You’ll fall in love with it. Of all the places we traveled in Mexico this was one of my favorites. Colorful, unique, charming…great food and accommodations. Although it was a bit disconcerting to find armed guards at the border…I loved Chiapas. Can’t wait to hear your rendition of SCDLC. Another adventure to live vicariously through you.
Laurie J.M. says
Definitely coming with, via your blog. I’ve never been to Mexico so I’m looking forward to it. 🙂
Saucy Chick Sherry says
Oh yes please…I want to travel with you on your next adventure. I have never been to the highlands of Mexico and it looks charming. Your Budapest journal is quite the book of wonderful memories and I should think although you will soon be finito that you will be visiting it often. I am off to “meet” Dorothy…I do love Cambria.
Mexico — how lucky I will be to travel along vicariously with you! You must read On Mexican Time by Tony Cohan. It’s about an LA couple who get tired of city life and move to San Miguel de Allende. It brings the colors and quirks of Mexico alive.
Terry Butler says
I travel with you even when your home. Thanks for sharing! BTW I visited Dorothy’s blog and she is delightful. I told her I would trade her some “give myself a vacation day” (which I have plenty of) for some “I must do what I should do”.
Pauline Clark says
Oh…so lucky! My daughter has been living in Mexico for two years (currently Playa del Carmen) but she’s travelled all around and especially loved San Cristobal. We are going to visit soon and hopefully get to a colonial city but it won’t be far from Cancun for this time! I love Mexico though and can’t wait to see your stories!
Mary Ann, you are living large – and fabulously – just look at your new home away from home! ‘Coming with?’ Wouldn’t miss it! Thank you for asking. Your Budapest Journal looks beautiful. And ‘multi-tasking’ just isn’t all that wonderful. You strike me as much more of a ‘Be Here Now’ person. Good for you! I love all of these photos – especially Wyatt on the magic carpet!
What a beautiful house. I can’t wait until we travel there!! I tried talking my sister into a Mexican getaway but she has it ingrained in her mind that Mexico is unsafe. I don’t believe that for a minute!!
Paula S In New Mexico says
This sounds and looks like a great travel spot. Only I REALLY want to go with you. Not just meet up at your blog. I think you should hold a journal retreat. I’d be there !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please oh please.

Your hacienda looks amazing! I can’t wait to hang out there with you and Giant Buck. () () ()
peggy mcdevitt says
Can’t wait to go to Mexico with you, what fun is awaiing us – Love your trips. Enjoy
donna, doni, lady d says
I’ve heard good things about San Cristobal! I’ll be along for the ride.
Susie LaFond says
Well count me in for the trip. I’ve already strapped on my wings…I am sure gonna look silly for the next 9 weeks but it is October so I am just gonna say that I’m breaking them in for my Halloween midnight flight but I don’t care, I don’t want to be late for the departure. And the accommodations look utterly divine.
You are amazing. I so enjoy traveling with you.
