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...

The person in the woman's costume above is throwing flour at everyone. I don't know if these are men dressed up like women or women being silly. Very strange costumes. People are running away so they don't get floured.
Someone told me that the flouring and dancing goes on every Sunday for four Sundays in a row. This is the second one. After that, the carnival will be here. This dog got caught running in the wrong direction. At least he has a coat to protect him from all the flour.
After all the excitement of dancing, flouring and running, I walked to the chicken place and bought lunch. Chico helped me eat it after we got home. This little girl didn't look happy. Maybe she felt left out of all the fun. Or maybe she didn't like me taking her picture.
