The China tales are at an end. But my travels may not be.
Yesterday Abandou asked: "Where will we be tagging along to next? Has that been decided?"
I may have an answer. Possibly two. The photograph at the top of this post is a good clue for the first possibility.
Early last week, Dan of Mex-Eco Tours saw me in town and told me there was a possibility that he and Ruth would be putting together a trip to Guanajuato. It is getting rather late in the season, but he hoped enough NOBers would still be in town to fill a tour.
True to his word, an email arrived announcing a four-day trip to Guanajuato, Delores Hidalgo, and San Miguel de Allende starting on 20 March.
You may recall, I went on a similar trip in January last year. You can read about it at: putting it together, visiting frog mountain, little gto, to see -- and observe, the tax man cometh, and shangri-la goes missing.
I enjoyed that trip. Enough that I signed up for two additional trips with Mex-Eco Tours that year. And the Copper Canyon tour this year.
But here is the rub. I talked with Ruth on Monday. Only eight people have signed up. Twenty are needed for the trip.
So, if you are in the Melaque area and want an interesting diversion, give serious consideration to coming along.
If the Guanajuato trip does not pan out, I am looking at the possibility of a 30-day cruise from New Orleans to Dubai (through the Suez Canal) later this spring. But more details on that later.
For now, I will wait to see if here are enough adventurers left in town to head off to Guanajuato.
