Riding the range took us to Cabo, Mexico last week for a short vacation that was enjoyable in 80-degree sunshine. The Frontier flight back home on Sunday took nine hours for a nonstop flight. Flight was delayed apparently because of bad weather in the Chicago area, but the plane sat on ground in Cabo for five hours before taking off.
We cooled our heels in the nice Cabo airport from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with no explanation of what was creating the delay. Other family members traveled on United leaving at 3 p.m. and beat us home by an hour with no delays in their flight. Go figure. I won’t be flying on Frontier again anytime soon.
Mexican currency was around 18 pesos for an American dollar, and dollars were very popular. Cab fares around $8 U.S. dollars and meals usually priced in pesos with good value and overall quality.
We saw a few more troops on the highways, but overall everything was calm and quiet in the Cabo San Lucas and San Jose areas.
The hotels, airport and restaurants were very crowded, and business was booming in Mexico during the week. We enjoyed our visit.
I got a great email from Irv Burns, who liked my suggestion about having a University of Guantanamo in Cuba, rather than a military prison at some future date. Irv amusingly questioned where and how we would be able to find any university professors who could teach free enterprise, and not socialism. That might be a challenge, Irv, but I think there are still some great teachers around who might still believe in our economic system and our rule of law. Any volunteers?
Will catch up on my city reporting. I see that Greenwood Village has launched some new websites for residents in efforts to keep people informed on some of the traffic studies, et al. Every city that we deal with makes strong efforts to keep citizens informed on major governmental questions and issues. However, this is information that comes from government and is filtered extensively. We still need independent sources of news and opinions that come from the people and their independent news sources, such as The Villager.
