    You can take the girl out of the city

    Sometimes, I try to think of the title before I write a blog post. That’s one way to do it. Often I change it, but at least with a title, I have some overall idea of what I’m trying to say. This isn’t that. I’m …

    Home again, home again…

    Well, that was a bust. Don’t even ask. I flew 5,000 km (each way) to talk to a supposed business man who wants to be the next Tim Hortons, who despite my having an appointment, set up 10 days prior, and despite my emailing him …

    That proverbial fork in the road

    Boy, we sure have had a lot of unexpected considerations pop up lately. Some good, some a little crazy. We saw a house online that was an unbelievable deal and just missed it by a few days. Of course, I wasn’t looking, really, which is …

    So many different worlds

    Well, we’ve been here just four weeks now, and learning lots about the city. CW’s visa process was super simple, what had taken over a month in San Miguel took three days here, which is bloody incredible. He submitted his info (from the consulate) on …

    Look ma, no hands!

    The training wheels are off. We’ve been here now for 10 days (more like two weeks by the time I post) and are starting to feel a little more settled. There’s enough food in the fridge and we are both back at work earnestly but …

    You are where you are

    And yo es aqui with an accent (that’d be aquí of course). A little over 24 hours in DF so far and it feels like I never left. Off to Cuernavaca tomorrow (Uber car) to set up the house. Everything feels just right. Even found …
