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...

Trip to Chapala
The above two photos were taken at the bus stop in Ajijic.
Above is the inside of the Chapala bus station. They keep it very clean. Also the bathrooms in there are clean. It costs three pesos to use them. Well worth the money.
The two above photos are of a mother and daughter in one of the little stores by the bus station. Both of them has such beautiful smiles I had to take their pictures.
It was very quiet in Chapala yesterday morning. The street vendors were just setting up. Chapala usually is only crowded on week ends. That is when the people from Guadalajara come in for a rest from their work week.
