ISOA BannerI was browsing through my photo archive and decided to pull out some pics from my Guadalajara Mexico trip of twenty years ago. (how could it be that long ago!!; seems almost like yesterday). I spent quite a lot of time there in the 1990s on business.

The “America” in the category  is not just the United States but also includes Canada and Mexico. I love both of those countries as well as my own.

I did it a little differently this time as I added some captions to indicate why I picked these particular pictures.

Our Southern Neighbors…

My search of America certainly includes our southern neighbors. I visited Guadalajara Mexico for the first time in the mid-1980s. It was quite different then than it was just ten years later when these pictures were taken.  Guadalajara or GDL is a very artistic place. I spent months there setting up a manufacturing plant which of course, was shut down ten years later and moved to China. The people I met there are the most friendly I have come across in my travels.

Tequila Mexico – 1995



I just poked my picture directory to see what would come out for this post. What you see is the raw ingredient for tequila. I took these pictures when we were in Guadalajara Mexico in 1995. I spent a lot of time there during my life in the corporate world. I never found a more gracious people than the co-workers families I visited while there.





South of the Border (Finishing up)….

Let’s finish up the tour of my time in Mexico with photos of the people and the places I lived. I haven’t been back to GD since 1995 when these pictures were taken but I hope to return there again some time soon. The first picture is of my wife walking the beach in Manzanillo. It is one of my favorite pictures of her.
