My mom just recently took a trip down to San Luis Potosí, Mexico for Mother’s Day. It’s been a while since her last visit. While she was there it was great knowing that I could quickly get in contact with her by just picking up the phone.

Actually, it seems that nowadays everyone is using their phones to make calls to Mexico instead of using phone cards anymore.  Do you remember those? I do. I also remember my mom used to complain that if our family in Mexico didn’t answer their phone quickly enough her minutes would dwindle down with every ring.  She called those cards a rip off. I know they were expensive and hard to find at times.

It really is kind of unbelievable that now anyone can call internationally for just a couple of bucks a month. I did when my mom was in Mexico. And for her, that definitely means two thumbs up!

On a related note here are some pictures of what my mom brought me back from Mexico.
