So my family had a few days to spend together on my daughter’s final spring break as a high school student. So of course with our President trying to muddy the waters at the border, where else would we decide to go? Mexico of course. We have a place that we have been to multiple times where the only route to get there is to drive into Mexico from Arizona.
Before you start thinking I was putting my family’s life in jeopardy, the spot we stay at is only 90 minutes into Mexico and is in the Mexico/American Free Zone. That means we don’t have to worry about Pesos or changing out money.
It is amazing there, so close to home (USA) but with the feel of a total different world. An unbelievably slow world that moves at a snail’s pace. Perfect for an old guy like me. The weather was great and we had yet another great time. Oh, and the crossing into and out of Mexico? I bet we spent a combined time (coming and leaving) at the border crossing of 45 seconds. Must be because we are so honest looking - boy are they fooled.
This week the Chisago Lakes High School will host it’s 50th annual variety show. This year’s theme will be “History in the Making”. I have been to every variety show for the last 15 years and they never disappoint. This year’s show runs tonight through Saturday with all shows beginning at 7 pm at the PAC. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online on the school’s website. See you there!
