It’s already been a few weeks since my previous Treasure Box post, and, as promised, this one has a little bit of everything in it. Although I’m positive all these items came home with me from Mexico, I’ve long since forgotten the exact way in which I acquired them. I’m also not including here my beloved stack of Mexican comic […]
In the final episode of Huell’s Baja Whale Adventure, he and his guides take a break from hanging out with the whales for a trip to the small town of San Ignacio. It takes them a little while to actually reach their destination, but there’s more than enough to see along the way. Then it’s time for a delicious meal […]
Huell’s Whale Adventure continues with the third of four episodes today. This segment features almost nonstop interaction with the grey whales, who seem to really enjoy being gently touched by human hands. Next week’s one-hour episode will see Huell getting away from the water a bit and exploring the nearby town. Until then, enjoy the whales! (Click on the linked […]

Although I can’t recall details about these specific images, I definitely remember visiting a number of prisons during our Mexico trips. When I think back on it now, it seems incredible that Frank Gonzales was allowed to bring a large group of young people (and at least one […]
Welcome back to Mexico Monday redux! I can’t remember if I’ve shared the corrected versions of my slides this week, but they include some of my favorite memories. One or two of the images seem to relate to ones I’ve previously shared — like the one below, showing our VW camper parked outside an open-air restaurant along the highway, shot […]
Mexico Monday redux is taking a break this week. See you next Monday!
This week’s images include pictures from 1973 and 1974 — inside a prison, building an orphanage in Tepic, and my Dad visiting with a family at their home.
