  1. Norma – when you use a bamboo basket as a suitcase, do you wrap the duck tape up and down on the basket to keep the lid in place? This idea is such a good one..excellent if one didn’t take a second suitcase.

    Do you ever offer tours to Mexico City for shopping, markets, museums?

    • Sue, I actually put the bamboo basket inside my suitcase because the sides are soft. I wrap the duct tape completely around the basket and lid several times in quarters like a pie. I wouldn’t use this basket idea as a separate “shipping container” instead of a second suitcase. I also wouldn’t put the basket inside a duffle bag. You need to use a zippered suitcase.

      I’ve never offered tours to Mexico City for shopping, markets or museums. I’d entertain the idea of showing you and friends some of my favorite places!

  2. Have also enjoyed your videos — short but well done. They tale my wife and me back to Oaxaca, a place we hold special in our hearts and look forward to visiting again as soon as possible.
