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...

Breakfast at Mom's Deli
I walked down the street and had breakfast at Mom's Deli this morning. Her food is delicious. This is my last morning at my house sitting job. Calling it a JOB doesn't quite fit. It is a beautiful home with a sweet dog who adores me and a private pool. What is WORK about that? But in a way I will be glad to go home. I will certainly be glad to see Chico again. I know he will smell this dog on me and he will probably pee on my floor to let me know that he isn't happy with me betraying him like that. But in a couple of days, he will be okay again. Dogs are so forgiving. I will be home for eight days and then on to the next house. It too is lovely and the dog and cat there are delights. Lucky Me..... It would take a lot for me to decide to leave here. This is my home now.
