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 Lake Chapala Society
The above two photos were taken on my walk home from the Lake Chapala Society. More trees are in bloom everyday. I love this time of the year but it can be a problem for people suffering from hay fever.
Above is my friend John. He only has a few more weeks here and then he has to return to his home in the States. I will miss him.
I took the above photo of the beautiful child while her mother was checking out the bulletin board at the LCS. I saw many notices up about people wanting to share rides back to the States or Canada, or caravan back together. It is time for the great exodus....I am lucky to be able to stay awhile longer this year. I have been going to the LCS in the late afternoons after the buildings have closed. I enjoy sitting in the gardens with a good book. I will be house sitting in a couple of weeks and it will be closer to LCS than my casita. I know I will be spending more time there than I am now. I won't have an internet connection at my casita so I won't be able to post as often as I do now.
