With the family in Mexico again

During this entire time, Ghylaine had been busy handling problems at school, making our enormous house beautiful, planting vines and flowers, and above all, making the children’s friends and all our family feel welcome. Now that the children were settled at school, Ghylaine went back to upgrade her teaching qualifications at the École normale Cardinal-Léger so that she could return to her true vocation.

In 1968, always game, Ghylaine suggested we take a break from the insanity of the previous few years and go on a family trip to Mexico with the van and a tent trailer. We drove to Niagara Falls, Serpent Mound, Mammoth Cave National Park, St. Louis, Dallas, Waco, San Antonio, Monterrey, Mexico City and Oaxaca, where we camped for two weeks during an earth festival. We returned via Cuernavaca, Teotihuacan, Guadalajara, Mazatlán, Durango, Monterrey, New Orleans, Washington, Albany and Ticonderoga to Montreal—loaded with objects, images and memories.
