Where we are headed 2020 – travel, life and business plans

So much to write about since our return to Raleigh (and last year’s travels) but it will all come soon enough. Settling back into normal life has been particularly challenging for the past few months. More on that later. For now, we wanted to kick start the new year and decade with enthusiasm and insight for the year to come. There is so much we are excited about.

Rainy forecast raises concern for homeless in LA County; some take warnings lightly

Barron Perry, who lives next to Encino Creek at the Sepulveda Basin, said he was ready for the rain that was expected to start falling late Tuesday night, Nov 19. It’s easier to manage, he said, than any of the wildfires that have ravaged the hillsides around the Los Angeles region. After the rains, “you can always get dry,” he said. True, there had been a bit of “excitement” at the Sepulveda Basin earlier this year, when the waters rose up all around his tent and he ran to move to higher ground...

Sample Mexican Wine at the Catando Festival in Guanajuato City

Quick, name three Mexican wine brands---go! Having trouble even coming up with one? You're not alone. Despite hundreds of wineries in the country, some of them producing some really high-quality bottles, very few people outside of the home country can name even one Mexican wine brand. Not all that many people in Mexico can either; most of them would rather drink beer, tequila, or rum. It hasn't helped that close to half the price of a bottle of Mexican wine is taxes. Mexico's additional taxes ...

Four Places Celebrating Day of the Dead Across Mexico

Day of the Dead in Mexico is a more complicated affair than Halloween and probably dates back even further. Just like its counterpart, it has gotten more commercial over the years, but at heart this is still a family affair. While the sugar skulls, parades, and Catrina figures get all the attention, it's the family alters that are at the heart of the holiday. Dia de los Muertos is a very Mexican event though, with the Mexicans' unique view of death having a big impact on the ceremonies. Houses...

There’s A Crisis At The Border!

USA Today: Days after threatening to close the U.S. border with Mexico, President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that his administration would slap tariffs on autos long before it considered sealing the nation off from its southern neighbor. “I don’t think we’ll ever have to close the border,” Trump said in the Oval Office. Trump’s statement marked a significant departure from his position  last week, when he said there was a “very good likelihood” he would close the border this week. The White...

Solo Female Travel in Mexico — Is it Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel alone in Mexico? ABSOLUTELY. Mexico gets a undeserved bad reputation for travel, particularly in the United States. Much of this is due to the cable news environment with its exaggerated narratives that Mexico is full of drug cartels and murderous immigrants. This is not what Mexico is actually like. In fact, the real Mexico is so different that you’ll be stunned. My name is Kate and I write about solo female travel for a living. And I’ve spent a lot of time tra...

Mexico fuel theft crackdown sparks shortages, puts government on defensive

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Monday that his crackdown against fuel theft was yielding positive results, even as the intervention sparked severe fuel shortages in parts of the country and long lines of angry motorists. In a bid to eliminate years of mounting theft, state oil firm Pemex has changed its distribution, triggering shortfalls in at least six states, including Guanajuato, a major car-making hub in central Mexico. Guanajuato's state government said that less t...

Gas stations in Mexico are running dry after the state-owned oil company cracked down on rampant fuel theft

Mexico shifted some gas distribution from pipelines to trucks, in order to curb rampant theft by criminal gangs. The changes led to shortages and long lines at gas stations in at least six of the country's states. State-owned Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex, said it was working to fix the delays. Shipping fuel by truck is much more expensive than via pipeline, an oil analyst told Reuters, and the issues could affect Mexico's broader economy.  Widespread gasoline shortages have been reported acr...
