Ted is on a side trip to Guadalajara for a couple of days, so we should have some new information, and new photos, hopefully by this weekend.
Meantime, interested has posted some great questions:
Very interesting story! Does Ted plan to save money in order to live better, or is the goal something Different? Or both? What is the attitude of the people to Americans? Is Ted concerned about any particular dangers? Did he need a permit from Mexico to move there, or just a visa. More information, por favor!
Very definitely, the experiment in living in Mexico is financially motivated, in part if not in whole. Not sure if he’ll be saving any money, but in retirement, he’s definitely looking to cut expenses.
Ted is near Lake Chapala right now for a 30-day stay, a test drive to see if it is truly a place he can live. He’s got an acquaintance there, an expat, who is living there, so we’ll ask Ted for any insight from his buddy regarding visas, etc.
As to dangers and attitudes, we’ll have to have him weigh in when he returns.
If you get the chance, check out this guy’s Web site. Steven Miller is a professional photog Ted met there. I unabashedly “borrowed” a couple of his photos for this post. Thanks Steve!
