We are currently driving in the Sierra Madre of Durango, close to the Sinaloa border in an area known as the Devil's Spine because of its 12,000 ft. The clouds you see are real and they are beneath us, that is how high we are.

As we are go back home, one cannot admire the beauty of Mexico.

It is a gorgeous country!

I have lots of time to think about life, the past, the present and the future as we drive to the city of Saltillo before we make our way north to the U.S.-Mexican border.

Tomorrow we will get back on track with chess related matters as well as world events.

Quite an outstanding record of achievements, Claudia. I wonder why your last name is mexican. Maybe your family is. I'm reading you in Mazatlan. I'm from here. I set a Google alert that warns me everytime you post something. Have a nice trip back to the US and thank you for that beautiful picture taken from El Espinazo del Diablo. Maybe the next time you use the same route the new Durango-Mazatlan freeway will be operating. Hope to read from you then.

My last name is Mexican because both of my parents were born in Mexico and their entire ancestry is from there. Although I am American by birth, I became a Mexican citizen in February, you can read the article by clicking here in my Spanish-language blog:,

So now I have dual citizenship and I am very proud of it.

Thanks for reading my blog!
