Still the best
My first visit to the Indonesian island of Bali was in 1955 – long before the terrorist attack. And I have been going to Mexico’s Puerto Vallarta for 23 years.
My hotel in Bali was a one-story, 32-room villa. Now all of the world’s super hotels are open – glass and towers. The largest signboard I’ve ever seen is between the Puerto Vallarta airport and the city. It announced the grand opening of Wall-Mart.
Colorado’s magnificient mountains are too large to be completely overwhelmed. This is not true in most of the world’s premier living areas.
So cheer up. Vail may suffer from the big boxs, but is still the best the world, nevertheless.
Among Vail’s volunteers, we tracked down Bob “Buckwheat” Buckley, Tony White and Brooke Franke Gagnon. They all said it was tough, that they loved it and suggested that if you try it you’ll love it too.
