I'm also working on an interactive non-commercial travel website based on the Rick Steves travel philosophy. Not much on there yet but you're welcome to visit (and join if you like by clicking on "community").
And if you want to read about a short trip that a couple of us recently took to Alamos, Mexico, go to http://www.etbdphx.blogspot.com...then click on "older posts" and "Festival Ortiz Tirado, a Jewel of a Music Festival in a Gem of a Mexican Town"
