Bienvenidos and Welcome...
These blogs enjoyed a legacy of a little over a 4 years, from Febrero 2003 to Agosto 2007 - the early days of internet blogging. Reflecting on my life in the state of Queretaro and my first years of living in mainland Mexico. I discovered that living in Baja is not the "real" Mexico at all. I spent a couple years friving the Baja in the late 90's, finally settling in Los Cabo - met alot of fun drunken tourists, double knot spies and Expats that I guess you could call 'social friends or amigos'. But there is nothing in la Baja that can prepare you for the country of México.
To the right are a few links to some of the best of my Mexican blogs, with personal experiences and tips about living in Mexico, the stories of her people and the cultural ways that make this wonderful country so special, if not sometimes frustrating as I do go off on a rant every once in awhile... warning, it does get a bit political at times! But after a few years in the Mexico system, you learn to laugh and not stress about the way things work. The entire blog archives index is available on your left.

Looks like I didn't touch too heavily on a couple important holidays in México, like the 'Santa Semana' holy week (Easter) - probably because Mexico is pretty much closed that week and I can't get any business done! Nor the holiest of all days 'Dia de la Madre' (Mother's Day), May has so many freakin' holidays that they out-number the work days....

I hope you have enjoyed these blogs and that some of them have given you a special insight into living in Mexico and the way the game is played.
If I decide to start up a 'new' blog sometime in the future, a link will be put on this page to direct you to the new site.
