We have also gotten offers for trades in Holland, Austria, Marseilles, Paris, England, Ireland and places I've forgotten. I am really quite surprised that so many people want to trade for our house, a humble, modest house in a humble and modest village in southern France, but they do. We got an incredible number of offers from Australia, and if we had so desired, we could have made any number to trades and spent an entire season down under. I don't know what the attraction is for Australians, perhaps their dollar is strong right now against the Euro, who knows.
I passed through Puerto Vallarta on a family trip to Manzanillo. We stopped for a few minutes in the central portion of town many years ago. I thought then, and I've heard from others and read that Puerto Vallarta is the most European of Mexican villages. Well, judging by the photo above, it doesn't look like much of a village, more like a city. In any case, it will be good to get out of Dodge for awhile and seek out some warm weather and beach time.
