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 Garden Restaurant in AJijic
I met Patricia through John. They met in Ecuador. We had a long talk about the pros and cons of living in Mexico and Ecuador.
Dale still looks tired in the above photo. That long bus trip took a lot out of him.
My friend John. He leaves on Saturday and Dale takes over the lease on the apartment.
We were the only customers in this beautiful restaurant.
I loved watching the male peacock trying to get the attention of the female. She just ignored him. The Garden Restaurant is on Colon towards the lake. I had never eaten there and I was surprised to walk into such a huge garden in the midst of town. It was a lovely afternoon and we stayed a couple of hours. The food was reasonably priced and good. After listening to John and Patricia talk about Ecuador, I decided I like Mexico better.
