  1. Sorry I can't give you current advice for i have not been in this area for 10 years. But my favorite place to visit and stay is Hacienda de la Esperanza outside of Tonila. If it hasn't changed you will find a beautiful hacienda, excellent place to stay and eat, with a fantastic Mexican history. I've stayed there twice and give ie 5 stars. It is about 20 miles from Colima and an loaded with history and views of the volcano. I would think this little village would be safe and free from crime. If the management has not changed they did an excellent job of making one comfortable and well served. I would be interested in knowing what it is like today - comments please.
  2. La Chula 2. It's good to hear from old friends. I hope you are doing well. Becky and I are adjusting to old age and slowing down. We are finding out that there ain't no gold in them there golden years. We settled in San Marcos. TX., and so did my oldest son and his two girls. Life is busy. I still have so many fond memories of Mexico, and it is good to see that I am remembered. Are you still living in the same house? Regards, Everett Kergosien (EEKWRITER)
  3. I currently have a book "Slivers of Ol' Mexico" on Amazon for sale. (Amazon.com/everett e. kergosien) It highlights the five years my wife and I lived in the Lake Chapala area and Mazatlan. Both excellent memories, yet very different. The book are filled with the joys and adventures of expats living in Mexico - a fun light read. Enjoy! Everett E. Kergosien
  4. I didn't see where I posted repeats three times. Sorry! The moderator must have correct the mistake.. Well, with old age my fingers often wonder where my mind doesn't. Now, as to Ajijic and Mazatlan - I loved each. both different and both only a small Sliver of Mexico. Enjoy the book! Just me ... EEKWRITER
  5. I am a past member of Chapala.com, past member of The Chapala Society and participant of the writers group when I lived in Ajijic for three years (and Mazatlan 2 years). I currently have a book "Slivers of Ol' Mexico" on Amazon for sale. (Amazon.com/everett e. kergosien) It highlights the five years my wife and I lived in the Lake Chapala area and Mazatlan. It is the daily adventures of expats living in Mexico - a fun light read. Enjoy! Everett E. Kergosien
  6. I am in the states now and have to walk with a cane for balance and stability. If you want to look pretty with a heavy decorative wooden canes, then you will look cool. But if it's for stability and functionality I recommend a lightweight, aluminum adjustable rubber tip trekking pole. They are lighter and more functional than what I have found as medical canes or walkers. Here in the states, Walmart (perhaps Amazon) and others sell them. They are cheap (two to a package) very sturdy and adjustable to height. You will need to buy a larger size rubber tip. For me, this is the only answer. Perhaps a large sporting good store in Guadalajara may carry them or can order. One fall from those woodensticks can end you looking cool. Good luck.
  7. Lovely! It brought back memories and tears. Thanks. Everett.
