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...

Open Circle on Sunday
Above are Sara and her sweet dog Luna. Luna is the dog that was attacked a few weeks ago by the Rottweilers. She is healing nicely but Sara is still traumatized by the experience. I don't know the two women in the above photos. I just wanted to show you the beautiful clothes they are wearing. The white dress was handwoven in Oaxaca. The necklaces were handmade here in Chapala. Above is my friend Louise. She was my first friend when I came to this area. She has been living here for over thirty years. I will always have a place for her in my heart.
Above is my friend Dawn. I can't keep up with all the wonderful women I am meeting here. Everytime I take a walk I run into one of them or I get invited to something they are doing. If I feel lonely I just have to pick up the phone and I have a friend.
