I’m dreaming of all the friends I made in my business trips to Guadalajara Mexico. Especially those who helped me celebrate life at the Guadalajara Grill.
I 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.

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.

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.
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.
