I Live In A Great Place!


I'm very lucky to have landed here in Northern Mexico. Not only did make a decent living over the years but I also live in a beautiful place.
This morning I had a class cancellation and so I went to the gym later than usual. Wow, what a difference driving into town. The mountains take on a different view with the rising and passing of the sun.
I've been a busy beaver this morning. Taking advantage of the free time, I left the gym and headed for the new place in Allende. I had the workers dig the trench for the underground cabling and cut the grass. I also checked on the new trailer to see that everything was okay inside. If all goes well, some construction may begin as early as the next two weeks. You can see the worker on the tractor cutting the grass.
On the way back to the quinta I stopped to get my ears lowered. It took about 45 minutes but was worth the wait. I am contemplating on a trip to San Antonio this Thursday or Friday and don't want to wait until I get back to get a haircut.
I also took some pics of the new neighborhood in Monterrey I mentioned yesterday.The place is called Antigua and you can see the starting price of 3,800,000 in pesos. Incredible. No yard to speak of, just a small patio area.
Carpe Diem, sieze the day! It looks like a good one!


  1. I have been looking for a place to buy in Mexico, that is not in a touristy area and a little further South. I found one Barra De Navidad real estate online, it looks alright but I do not like doing things like this, without an outside opinion from someone who might know about it. Have you ever been to this area before?, from what I read it is only about 1 hour North of Manzanillo and 3 or 4 hours South of Puerto Vallarta. If you know anything about the area or of any other cool little spots, any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

  2. I don't know the area personally. However, I am recommending that you check http://www.mexconnect.com/. It is a good online source for foreigners in Mexico. Have you ever lived or traveled in Mexico? Will you be retiring or looking for work? A lot depends on your pocketbook and of course the first plan of attack would be to go peronally and check what areas are to your liking. Send me an email and I will be glad to help you.
