    I retired in 2018.

    Moving to the city for 6-12 months before moving on. Got a list of places in my head.

    Oaxaca and Merida for winter unless you want beach then Pto. Escondido, Pto. Vallarta and a host of others. By no means a comprehensive list

    Walked down the hill this morning to meet with @Blind Warrior and associate to check on a couple of houses. Both have real potential

    I hosted Alex in Austin after his South America tour years ago. Now he’s hosting me in PV this weekend. Good times

    Big errand day today. Found this tile shop near the Jardin. They have a taller in Dolores Hidalgo and gave me time/$$ quote on replacement tiles for my friends in Ajijic

    Once again I’ve been reminded that all of life is a near death experience. Let’s all get out there and live it fully.

    Another beautiful afternoon at the home of Ana Cervantes. Here’s just a taste of the quintet. I haven’t heard the viola played in quite some time. Lovely

    Met Sonia at the INM in San Miguel de Allende at 8:30 am today to complete the Permanent Resident visa process. Doors opened at 9:00 am and by 10:00 am I was getting on the bike holding a brand new Visa card. Incredible. She’s worth every centavo of her modest fee and I highly recommend her.
