The E-book Mexico: The  Trick is Living Here will helpClick Image To Visit SiteTo be honest, when you live or retire in Mexico, the first year is especially difficult — worth it, but difficult. I found my first year full of challenges and culture shock. Everything seemed so hard as I figured it out for myself. A practical guidebook full of how-to details would have been a huge help for me.

Now, I have expanded Mexico: The Trick is Living Here and created a second edition. Many of my readers are Canadian, so I have added two sections just for Canadian snow birds looking to live in Mexico. I have also added more information about the cost of living, driving in Mexico, health care and doing paperwork in Mexico, among other things.

Here is the table of contents of Mexico: The Trick is Living Here Second Edition so that you can see the types of practical things I’ve included. (Notice the unique section on cultural information, available nowhere else in print or on the web.)

For a few dollars you can have this detailed handbook at your side during the months of planning as well as the first year of your stay in Mexico. It’s a lot cheaper than a failed move to Mexico! Lots of my readers contact me and tell me how they have read and re-read sections that were particularily useful to them.

The first person to read Mexico: The Trick is Living Here was a Canadian expatriate. Here are her comments:

"I was really excited to read the e-book. I had a few … ‘ah-ha moments’ as I read along. It felt good to know that I am not alone in this and that the way I feel about things is normal! It wasn’t just that but… I feel pretty helpless about doing things most of the time here… I have always been independent. Now I can’t do things without [my Mexican friend’s] help. You helped me to see that I will be able to (no matter how different the process is here!)

"I think that you have a real talent for speaking the truth without offending….I wish I could do that. …I pulled my inflatable bed up to my laptop on fruit crates and bunked down and read the whole thing!

"The other thing was that I thought that you had a really nice flow to it all. I just kept reading with ease. I think it is fabulous and I am totally inspired."

I read things written by others who had supposedly "lived" here. I wanted affirmation that the culture shock I was experiencing was normal, strategies for handling new experiences, and to know how to get my household set up.

I got none of this. I found that what others wrote showed them living as Americans in Mexico–apart from the Mexicans that surrounded them. But I hadn’t moved to Mexico to remain separate from Mexicans and I didn’t have the money to live the same way I had lived in the U… Read more…
