The life of an expatriate is what one makes of it. Our lives here in Mexico are just beginning. We now have a house, a local telephone, a television (those in Podunk were sold or given away), a satellite TV connection (Canadian feed, Detroit feed, etc.), and a DSL internet connection.
What more could we ask for? Hmmm... a used washing machine (we don't need a dryer in this arid mountain village), an entertainment center, and I NEED a rocking chair. We'll try to do without ALL of the gringo creature comforts ... but we want our internets and other things to do during the rainy season.
I have discovered that my Lamictal is available and cheaper down here, as well as several other meds. I already have found a doctor to supervise my medications and care. He works out of a pharmacy as many doctors do in this village.
Mood? Pretty damn good!!! I walk about Ajijic with a smile on my face and with friendly greetings every day (that's a story for another day). Estoy feliz!
Now, it's time to catch up on reading blogs and the news sites.
