More about us

  1. Guillermo and I came to reside in Oaxaca as young newley weds in 1965 when Oaxaca was a sleepy quiet town. Now it is the center of the nations most important artist and enviornmental movements. We have been an intergral part of this along with our 3 children. We feel priviliged to be able to call magical Oaxaca our home but are feeling a desire to experience other beautiful places. Guillermo is an art dealer and developer and I have been involved in environmental and women's movements over the years. We have 3 grown children, an artist, an anthropoligist and entrepreneur. 2 beautiful grandaughters and all of us are called by the song of far away places.
