Notas sobre el Tequila San Felipe en el Festival de Mar de Cortés:

Glad to be away from BIG BROTHER

In the USA today they will probably be legalizing the medical takeover. We are living in Cordoba, Veracruz and are happy to be in a place where we can pay (as little as $1.75) to visit a real doctor, buy medicines without prescriptions, not bother with paperwork or bureaucrats. I am 69 years old and have not had health insurance since 1977. We have lived here in Cordoba since 1992 and have just bought a house near Puerto Vallarta.

Life is good.

Excellent time to buy in Mexico - especially if you're Canadian!

Some people are thinking that prices in Mexico are currently very low, "but maybe they will go down a bit more.” We are

seeing some good movement in the upper end of the market ($1M plus

properties). Although no one has a crystal ball with a clear vision of

the future, I consider people looking for high-end properties to be good money

managers - what I call "smart money."…

Real Estate Market Update - Sense of Urgencey

I know it has been difficult in the current market to create a sense of urgency with buyers - prices are excellent, "but maybe they will go down a bit more." Have you heard this? We are seeing some

good movement in the upper end of the market ($1M plus properties).

Although no one has a crystal ball with a clear vision of the future, I

Ahhhhhhh... MY MEXICO

Ahhh my Mexico, you are so beautiful, funny, eye opening, and delightful. You are not the Mexico of the hard working tourist who arrives for a week to luxuriate in an all inclusive. You are the Mexico of the people.... the Mexico that welcomes those with a sense of adventure, intrigue, and a love of learning into the lives of those who really live here. You are the Mexico that tests my openness, challenges my adaptation, and frees me to be me in all things.

the air. I call it our Happy Gas. But unless you live here you may not

know about what I call the Hot Babe Fairy Dust, a phenomenon that

occurs at Lake Chapala.
