A visit to Xalapa & Santa Anas Hacienda


 Last march the  Sardesons (genuine tourist) and I took a trip to Xalapa to check out expats hiding out in the jungle. Along the way we visited Xico & Coatepec and had a great time meeting people who havent been scared off by the negative press propaganda north of the border.

We had the honor of meeting fellow blogger Juan Calypso and his wife and several other expats around the area. Afterwards we took a tour of  “El Lencero” Hacienda Museum that had been the home of General Santa Ana…yes the infamous Santa Ana of the Alamo.  It is a fantastic hacienda that is now a state run museum that has been beautifully restored
