Just another average sunset in paradise!

These are a few of my favorite things . . .

My flip-flops!  My brother and his wife gave them to me for Christmas.  One broke yesterday and it really bummed me out.  There is no where in Mexico that I know of to buy "Reefs".  Luckily I was able to fix it with a needle and dental floss.  I knew that stuff was good for something!

Can you see the repair work on the left one?

Buying second hand clothes.  I like buying second hand because everything is already broken in, shrunk and faded.  I bought three tee shirts last week for $2. each and they are perfect.  I also got an Hawaiian shirt for $1. that probably cost $60. when new.

Making new friends.  It is amazing but I have made more friends in Mexico in the past two months than I made in the U.S. in the past two years.  I know why they call Mexico the amigo country.  

Having no schedule.  Each morning when I awake, I lay in bed and appreciate the fact that there is absolutely nothing that I need to accomplish for the day.  Sure I accomplish things but not because I have to; because I choose to.  

Today I chose to blog.  Tomorrow, who knows?


  1. Been reading your blog for a while now... and... BOY! Do you ever make me homesick for our winters in Mexico. Especially the San Blas area... One of my favorite memories was that we just happened to be at a place where a priest was celebrating his 50th anniversary of priesthood... outdoor mass overlooking the sea... mariachi band... But... no matter what... I hope one of these winters to head back down to your adopted area!

  2. Dave I don't know if you have addressed this somewhere, but I was wondering how you get money in Mexico. Do you have money deposited in a bank in the US and just use an ATM card? I don't mean to be too personal. Just curious. :)

  3. Great list of favorite things. You did a great job on the flip flop - I can't see the repair!

  4. Just gotta love the life in Mexico! Does it get any better than this?

  5. You can also use a needle and fishing line. It will hold really well.

    I agree, I love waking up and knowing I don't have to do anything or be anywhere unless I choose to.


  6. Hi,

    I came across your page recently and I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

    Thanks and have a great day!
