About Me

I moved, with my husband and 2 cats, to Mérida, Yucatan MEXICO  in January 2006.  We came from Colorado Springs, Colorado USofA where we had lived since April 1975.

This is about my daily life living as a visitor in another country.

I also try to help and offer advice on navigating life in a foreign country.  

In 2012 my status changed, I am now a Residente Permanente in Mexico.  Additionally we now are also in service to 3 dogs!


On May 24, 2016 we left Merida, Yucatan, MX in the same 1999 Ford Taurus that brought us down in February 20o6.  This time we travel with 3 dogs.

We have relocated to Richmond, Virginia, USA.

This will now be my tales of repatriation and adjusting to a new culture.
