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...

Maggie Garcia, manager
One of the fun things about having friends visit from out of town is that they want to look into places I have never bothered to visit. Arden Muebles is one of those places. Since I don't own a home, or even have a rental large enough for more furniture than my wooden boxes, I have not been interested in looking at furniture. But Arden Muebles was interesting. There is furniture from all over the world. Also, a woman was bringing in dolls that were made by the women prisoners in Guadalajara. Maggie is going to sell them for her. All the money made by them goes directly back to the women in prison. There are many beautiful dolls to choose from and it seems like a worthy cause. Maggie is starting a huge sale in her store because right now she is overstocked. There are so many unusual pieces in the store. If you aren't in the market to buy, it is a fun way to spend a couple of hours. It is close to Cafe Magana. The web site is www.mueblesarden.com Hidalgo No. 81, Ribaris del Pilar, 376 765 3540
