Missing Mexico September 2016

Posada Roca Blanca back in 2008
 It's that time of year again. I get so anxious and the feeling is so strong, I just want to jump on a plane and bus and head to Zipolite. I miss all my family and friends there. Nearly 4 years now since we've been back.

 But I can't, not right now...I am going to go to school for a bit and my kid's in school, many reading this post and blog know her...she's not homeschooled any more...I have her in the system. She likes it. She's learning a lot. I wish I could teach her but she is old enough to choose.

I wanted to do a shout out to everyone down there. So here goes...

A few years back I really tried my hardest to make an app but I just couldn't finish it so I could get it in the Playstore...but I did build this blog. Sorry I haven't updated it lately but will soon.

Here's a list of hotels the have rooms in the off season for under $50 a night

There's going to be a BIG CELEBRATION for Dia De Los Muertos.

Para crear un altar por la paz, en honor a nuestros difuntos y a los muertos victimas de la violencia en México; dentro de las actividades del 5er Festival del día de muertos, Zipolite 2016.  MECANICA: Traer velas, flores, dulces, semillas, cigarros, etc. Y el deseo que la paz regrese a nuestro México y el mundo. El altar prendera todas las velas que se recopilen el día 2 de noviembre y habrá velación. La recepción de donaciones para el altar por la paz será en los siguientes puntos: Zipolite - “Colectivo Social Club”

If you want to learn more about Mexico, Oaxaca, Zipolite, Dia de Los Muertos, you should watch my videos and read through this blog. Even though I don't post here that often there is a lot of great info here.

Here's some great videos I made in Oaxaca City. It was really a wonderful experience that I was able to share with my daughter and I am very very grateful for it.

This link is to a Facebook Page Album for many of the Roca Blanca Area- Zipolite Businesses/Negocios and if you click through them you can find info on hotels and restaurant. Just know that I have not updated in nearly 4 years so you have to do your own research.
