I absolutely Love this Blog!! I've never wanted to go to Mexico, but after reading about all the places that are written about, I want too. I love the fact that the author doesn't write about the "normal" touristy places in Mexico. I can't wait for the next "Home Town" parade or eatery or store she takes us to. I love her style of writing, I know when I read it I will have a sense of joy that all is right in the world...at least it is in Mexico.

Barb, who writes most of the blogs there, has an engaging way of expressing where she visits and what she sees. The stories of her travels are well written and paint a picture that makes one feel like they've been there along with Barb. After reading these entries one feels like Mexico would be a great place to visit, despite what one may see or read in the media. She portrays Mexico as it really is. I enjoy her blogs and look forward to each and every one.

Been following this blog for quiote some time and it is where I come to get my Mexico fix. Lots of colorful pictures and prose. Especally enjoy hearing about the poolboy/handyman/goto guy for just about everything.

I love the writing style of this blogger and follow it regularly. She takes you into the everyday life of what it is like to live in Mexico and the people who live there, both Mexican and expats. She takes you to places off the beaten path and introduces the "real" Mexico as opposed to what the media and travel brochures will tell you. The pictures are wonderful and the topics are varied making it a blog that I look forward to with each posting. She is a great storyteller and her wit brings a smile to my face each and every time!
