TUESDAY TRAVELS

In 1987 we visited our longtime friends, Tom and Lana Cochrun, in Indianapolis a few months before we headed south.

Way south.

I was presented with this homemade birthday card some time later.



 

While parts of that saga are not true, we did indeed move to Mexico and spent a mostly happy 4-1/2 years in the Guadalajara area.

I've always been curious why your Mexican adventure came to an end.

That is a great hat!

Prices began going up and it became nearly as expensive as living in the States. Plus I think we just got tired of struggling with the language.

Catalyst said...

Thank you. I still have it.

Tom Cochrun said...

Was never sure if that was a surly mug shot or the photo of a man waiting for the coffee to kick in?

Catalyst said...

You oughta know, photographer.

Wonderful to have longtime friends with a sense of humour.

Well, if you didn't look so young, and if I knew what was in the cup, I might refer to that photo as "The Old Man and the Tea."

Very cool photos/posters! So, would you say Mexico is the place to go what with the current regime in power?

Judy said...

And it's also true that you have arms, right? That's a good photo of you too.
That isn't Phantom Ranch in my photo, I think it's the Indian Gardens area.

You have great friends.

What a great card! You do look a bit dangerous in that photo.

Wonderful card to cherish.

If we were richer and younger . . . maybe.
