Why I Chose to Retire In Mexico

Why Mexico?

I am asked that question quite frequently by readers of my book, “Baja Diaries-Chronicles of a Paradise Lost.” Why did you and your wife retire in Mexico instead of Florida, New Mexico or another foreign country other than Mexico?

We have many members who still live in the USA. They're in the process of doing the groundwork for the move. I do hope the current financial crisis we're experiencing does not affect them in a negative manner.

Identity theft was never a worry because any self-respecting thief is

too choosy to steal mine.

No one wants an identity best known for eating 20 coney dogs in a

day. I create the same effect a 1997 Plymouth Neon has on… Continue
