This was to be our last night in hotels and we had a nice place just outside of the village. We spent sometime exploring ... Read More »

We had barely touched down in Vancouver after our four month European trip before taking off again. This time to Mexico for a two week trip. The attraction was a rendezvous with a group of friends we call the "villa people". This was our third séjour in a villa, the first time being in Umbria, Italy and the second Corsica, France. The villa this time was situated near the center of a beautiful Spanish colonia... Read More »
