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...

Talent Contest at La Bodega
Another talent contest has started at La Bodega on Wednesday nights. They start sometime after eight. There are six contestants and the three winners go on to sing on the last night. Unfortunately, four of them didn't show up on Wednesday. The only two singers both won. I guess you would say, fortunately for them that they had no competition. The contest goes on for several weeks. I don't remember the last date. It is a fund raiser. Each night is for a different organization. Last Wednesday was for the Red Cross. Not many people were there. I hope next week will have a better turn out and all the contestants will show up.
