This is Chapala

In case you are curious about why I would choose to live in Mexico, given its present bad press, here is a video about the place where I live that might explain why.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      I’ve been here for 17 years. It’s the longest I’ve ever been anywhere in my life other than the town I grew up in, which I was in for 18 years but never returned to live in after I went to college.

        That sounds great 🙂 The longest I’ve ever lived somewhere other than where I grew up was 5 years here in Kansas…I have lived in 26 states, but no foreign countries. I would move to Canada or Scotland in a heartbeat if I could.

    I’ve always been certain that, despite the bad press, there must be good places and good people in Mexico — the Mexicans don’t all belong to MS13! Lake Chapala reminds me of the flavor of Laredo,when I was there on a shore visit from a cruise of the Gulf of CA — a delightful place! My bucket list includes a visit to you in Lake Chapala!
