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...

A Quiet Saturday in Ajijic
I took Chico up to the Jardin Restaurant in the Plaza and had breakfast. Two musicians were playing some Jazz. Not many people were around. I was surprised. Usually it takes me a long time to get a table there.
This man offered to let me take his kayak out on the lake. Unfortunately, I was on my way to meet my friend Clare. I hope I run into him again sometime. I would love to go out on the lake with it. It is inflatable. I have one but it is a sit-on-top and I am afraid to use it. I have never taken it out.
Chico and Clare's dogs didn't know what to think of this miniature pony. Look at Chico's ears. He always puts them back like that when he is nervous or upset.
This is another three day week end. Tomorrow is Constitution Day. I thought it would have been very crowded here but I was surprised. It was quiet. Another sunset. Another day gone. I am glad I spent it doing the things I love.
