Good news

Photo on 1-8-16 at 7.24 PM

The weather has moderated just a little for a day or two, after we had rain-yes rain a rare occurrence here in Baja Mexico at least on the Sea of Cortez coast. Still it was a cold rain and my plants have suffered one is struggling to live. Today the sun was out and breakfast club with the other lizards was pleasant. I’m fortunate to have a group to socialize with and learn from as the ways of getting by in Mexico can be confusing if you’re trying to do it by yourself.

I am firming up plans to attend spanish language school, yes again, this time in Guadalajara Jalisco Mexico. This will be four weeks of intensive spanish only classes. I expect that my fellow students will be college students and professionals who are going to be very bright and committed to learning the language. I’ll have my work cut out for me to keep up. I am excited about the adventure ahead and I have high hopes this time my spanish will improve noticeably.

After the four weeks of spanish school I’m going to visit the Lake Chapala area for week or so before returning to San Felipe. I want to see how things have changed in the area and if I would fit in there. The draw for me is the climate it is supposed to be the second best climate in the world. Climate is not the only thing that would entice me to move, but after shivering my buns off this winter in San Felipe the idea has its appeal. I would sorely miss the friends and neighbors I have here so it better have a lot of charming attributes to make up for starting over, once again.

I also have to make a trip back to the old country to get a document notarized for the sale of my house last month. I’ll make a shopping trip out of it and buy some goodies for my comfort as there is a lot of winter left.

  1. The weather this year is no fun. Last winter I was in same area and only had a hand full of bad days, this year it is storm after storm with very little sun. Whatever you do enjoy yourself.

    • That’s my plan to enjoy myself doing those things I want to do. I’m more relaxed than I have ever been before. I take life as it comes one day at a time. I hope the weather improves for you, it has improved here today no cold wind nice and sunny, it could be a bit warmer, but I’ll take it 🙂

    Oh I’m eager to hear your take on Lake Chapala! I’ve always thought reinventing one’s life was such fun. It’s lovely having choices – and being able to go where spirit moves you. Safe travels always and Happy New Year!

    I have been following your blog for about a year now. Love it. My husband and I are renting a house in San Felipe for April of this year. We are spending Feb and March in Loreto. I am wondering if San Felipe has noseeums, or midges as some people call them, like Loreto does. These tiny bugs bite and do they ever itch – for ages. Any info would be much appreciated. Good luck with your Spanish classes. I admire your spirit of a life time of learning!

    • In all the time (4 yrs) I have been here I haven’t had a problem with no-see-ums. On the other hand flies can be a nuisance sometimes, there are ways to mitigate the flies like fly bait and it is effective. I hope you enjoy your trip to our little pueblo.
