Monroe Washington - NE of Seattle

Staying with family while doing my up-north yearly business. Was out seeing the country today while waiting for the wheels to turn and trying the new camera.

A little over two weeks ago I spent a week with friends in San Miguel. Impressive city but lots of gringos and very touristy. We spent time in the country by the lake, visited three balnearios, spend a day in Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo.

12 hours back to Melaque to find my house had been broken into and enough of my computer pieces taken that I couldn't work with or upload any fotos. That kind of stuff also kills the positive spirit so I just spend the week before heading north repairing the house and adding more security. Another week or two here and back to the tropics

Enjoy your time up north -- away from the humidity. But I want to talk with you about the break-in. Is there anything I can do from here? Drop me an email.

Sparks you have had some bad luck with crime hombre (apparently at least partly inside jobs).

We have had so little problem with that - I think we are becoming majorly careless with that confidence.

Would like to hear more details and your thoughts on this.

Hang-in there hombre.

I'm convinced this last breakin was local kids that knew I had computer equipment, knew my house and knew I was gone. Sadly I'm going to have to break relations with this one family.

Over 5 years I've only been hit by Pros once ... and they were from our third rate cable TV company. We now have a real cable company.

Watch your relations with neighbors and be very careful who has keys to your house

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
