A big thank you to those lovely people who responded to my post. I was uplifted by your good wishes for healing and your thoughts on the missed trip. I knew you would feel the pain of missing out on Mazatlan, I had met with a lot less sympathy from friends and family. Too bad that Mexico, Mazatlan in particular, does not rate up there, with the other great travel destinations of the world. I will keep following your enthusiastic postings. Thanks.
