Without a doubt….Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! On the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico, the weather should be clear and hot in November. Caleb Guidebook

Hi Chris,
Just listened to yours and Robin Noelle’s podcast on Puerto Vallarta. Naturally, I’m thrilled to have my name mentioned in the interview, but I’m also very happy to know about your show, and I look forward to following along with you in the future.
Robin is right on top of what is happening in PV. While she is “glowing” in the last days of a hot summer, I’m sitting sixty-five miles away on a mountain top wearing long sleeves and sleeping under a blanket in Talpa de Allende.
I’m working on another manuscript set in this village and surrounding areas in the 1860s.
Loved the interview on “my” town.

The host needs to loose his “hmm,okay” parasite phrase.It gets annoying after a few times.



To be fair the host never says “hmmm, ok” but you are right he does say “ok” a lot and sometimes I find it annoying.
