|Guanajuato-the view from my husband's house|
I am very excited about traveling south, and it has been hard to focus on projects here. But, I'm responsible, so I have:
1. cleaned out the iris bed in the front yard
2. trimmed the chocolate fennel so it doesn't take over the corner garden
3. cleaned the house, done laundry, cared for container plants, shopped and cooked for healthy meals
4. ripped out as much periwinkle as possible (which does just embolden the plant to spread further)
5. read The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
6. took my old horse out on the trail for a quiet, fun ride
7. fed dogs, watered dogs, played with dogs, hugged and petted dogs, and cleaned up after dogs
8. met with girlfriends for drinks (Diet Coke for me) and long talks
9. sewed a number of tees and tunics for my trip, and then decided to take only one of each

Did you know that it is extremely hard to cancel a reservation from Priceline.com? That you must be somewhat computer savvy, patient, and unflinching in your goal? We tried to call the hotel from both Mexico and the US...no progress. We tried to cancel via Priceline...no progress. It did not help that Ross had a rented phone and the phone system is not easy in Mexico. He called me and asked that I try from the US. I did get through to a real person on Priceline, and was able to ask that the reservations be cancelled. This took many menus and at least 30 minutes on the phone. I will NOT use Priceline again.
I found the hotel chain's web page and contacted them. I cannot tell you how helpful they were, and how gracious. Not only did Mr. Sacal take care of the problem, he did so in an open and hospitable way. I highly recommend this chain when booking stays in Mexico. Thank you Sergio!
