Have you ever considered retiring in Mexico? Have you wondered about daily living in a foreign country where you don't speak the language? What about hotels, hospitals, doctors, restaurants, banks, real estate and cultural activities? This is a diary of my daily life in Lake Chapala and other areas of Mexico. I don't speak Spanish. I am a single retired woman. I hope this blog will give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to make the move.

Inexpensive Rentals in Chapala and Ajijic
Several people have asked me about cheap rentals in Ajijic and Chapala. I have a couple of posts on my blogs but I want to put the names on again. A great real estate agent in Ajijic is Peter St. John. He works for Laguna Bed and Breakfast. Look at my blog called Real Estate and Bed and Breakfast in Ajijic. I think his phone number is on that post. It was made Thurs. Jan 22, 2009. Also today when I went into Chapala I ran into Beto at the local coffee shop. He owns the motel where I stayed for four months when I first came here. It is just half a block from the Chapala Plaza. Rooms are are around two hundred a month or little apts. are three hundred a month. He fills up in the winter time. Lots of places now. His phone number is 376 765 7087. You can find a photo of the Motel on the blog titled Chapala Plaza. It has a life size plastic cow in the front of it.
