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...

Lunch at the Tango Restaurant in Ajijic
I went alone to the Tango Restaurant for their 55 peso lunch special. It was delicious but I felt very lonely, sitting there by myself. I usually don't mind eating out alone but there is something about the Tango that requires a companion. Maybe because it is kind of fancy and I never see other people eating alone there. I forced myself not to buy their delicious chocolate cake. It is the best chocolate cake I have ever eaten. But I am trying to cut down on my food. Looking back at the photo of the sausage sandwich, I would say that I am not doing a very good job of that. The problem here is the abundance of great, inexpensive restaurants.... and delicious food. It is hard to have self control. I swim a hundred laps a day and keep on getting bigger. Then I wonder why. All I have to do is look at that photo to see why. Good food is my downfall.
