We've been in Ajijic for nine months. We love living here. The weather is nearly perfect. The people are pleasant and friendly. The food is REAL -- it's healthy and tasty. The cost of living is low.
We have a great house, good neighbors, and we live in a prime location. The movie theater, a grocery store, a laundry, the weekly flea market (tiangus), the phone and gas companies, two pharmacies, and several restaurants are just minutes away by foot. Everything we need is within walking distance. And, that's a good thing considering the fact that we no longer own any vehicles and we do not intend on purchasing any.
We have a new life. Despite several bumps in the road, we love the journey!
So, while Michigan faces a deep freeze, Port Huron debates all-day Kindergartens, and Blue Water leaders hope for a casino --- we live in Paradise.
BTW -- it is a little chilly here today. I may have to put on a pair of socks with my tennie runners.
