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...

Busy Day at the Lake Chapala Society
Above are the men working to try to clear up the Lirios from the lake. I say TRY because it seems to be a futile task. It grows very quickly.
Above is my friend Judy. She has just recently moved here but already she is involved with volunteering at the LCS. Behind her is my friend Ed. He is in charge of some of the volunteers. He and his wife, Carolyn, are special people to me. They are very loving and kind. A year ago I house sat for them. They have a beautiful home here. I don't know the woman above. I see her often at the LCS. There are many friendly people in Ajijic. Of course Chico is always part of any group where I go. He is my sidekick.
I have never seen the LCS grounds so crowded. There was a huge library book sale going on. Local writers were also selling their books and there was a general election. They want to change the LCS constitution. I don't know if it passed or not. There was a great deal of controversy over it. You can see that Chico has stuck his nose into things, too.
