Brothers Mario & Rodo, our faithful leaders on our trail rides through the desert highlands of Central Mexico!
Since relocating full-time to Mexico, we are often asked by family and friends back in the States, “What do you do there? How do you spend your time?” I think the natural assumption is that now that we are both technically retired from our stateside professions of firefighting and teaching, that we have idle time on our hands….hardly.
We have 10 year-old twins, are young and active, and keep ourselves joyfully engaged in a variety of activities here in the central highlands of Mexico.
The following photos give you an idea of what a ‘typical Thursday’ (and sometimes Saturday) looks like for us, during this chapter of our lives.
As mentioned before in a previous post, Country, Cowboys and Caballos, the owners of the home we are renting are awesome people—generous, altruistic, fun, down-to-earth, good people. We have a standing invitation to come out to their ranch in Banda—about 20 minutes outside of San Miguel de Allende in the countryside. It has been a tremendous gift to our family.

The rest? Stay tuned….more adventures to come!
