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.

Horseback Riding in Ajijic
One of the cowboys, taking a break. They have a lot of free time. Not a bad job from what I saw of their lives. My friend Clare is very comfortable with horses. When we returned from our ride the men were relaxing with some music. I will say this again, Mexicans sure know how to enjoy their lives. I was going to take photos while I rode my horse along the lake shore. Ha! I was too scared to take my hands off the saddle. I was gently being led by the young girl in one of the above photos. (She is leading a little girl on a horse.) With me, she was riding ahead on her horse and holding the reins to my horse. But I was still scared. It was beyond my comfort level but we all need to stretch out our comfort levels from time to time. It was a lot of fun, even though I was scared.
