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...

Going into the Rainy Season
I am house sitting now. My computer battery is expanding from the heat and I was told not to use my computer anymore. I have another one at this house to use but I don't know how to get photos onto my blog from them. So it looks like I am not going to be putting many photos on my blog until after I get this one up to the States to be repaired. The warranty is no good in Mexico.
My camera is breaking too. I just keep banging it on my hand. It is a temporary fix. A new camera is waiting for me in Portland. Looks like it is time to buy my plane ticket. I will go to Portland in July. In the meantime, looks like I am mostly going to be writing on this blog and putting on very few photos. If the battery gets too big it will blow out something important inside the computer. At least, that is what I was told by the repair department online. Why is it that everything seems to break at once?
