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.
This morning I received an e mail from a friend saying she is moving out of here. I wonder how many other expats are going to make that same...

Wednesday Market in Ajijic
These two top photos are single men here. At least I think they are single. The photo directly above here is of a man I met a couple of months ago. He recently moved here. His name is Alex and he is a professional photographer. He told me to buy the Canon ELPH. I showed my new camera to him. He said I should read all the instructions...I hate to do that. Two books of instructions.... He was very helpful to me about my camera. Above his photo is his friend, funny face. I don't know him at all and I can't remember his name. I am terrible about remembering names. But I am guessing that he is single too.....No I must be wrong because I see a ring on his finger. I make a lot of wrong assumptions about people. Sorry. The first photo is of a young Huichol man and his son. The man made many beautiful beaded pieces. I bought two for my son for Christmas. Above is a photo of a man pouring some kind of liquid that he sells. He sells all kinds of liquids from washing powders to shampoos. It is an inexpensive way to go. You are not paying for packaging or advertising. Very Eco Friendly.
The above man sells grains in bulk. Another way to save money. It is all good stuff. Pizzas.....Delicious...... Shrimp from San Blas. This lunch cost me less than a dollar. It is two tacos. The drink was also less than a dollar and it is fresh orange juice. I love the Wednesday Market.
