Mexico, My New Home
Last updated in March 2017
What an interesting place to live. Over twenty years ago I came to Mexico for my health. With a small backpack and nothing to lose, I headed south from my home
hoping for something better. That was the smartest move I ever made.
I drifted south to Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, a place I had visited as a college student. I made a few good friends, learned some Spanish and walked along the
sunny beaches boarding the Pacific Ocean. I found some inner peace, better health and happiness. I was so fascinated with the culture, the foods, and the people -
I decided to stay. In 2015, I became a Mexican citizen.
This site is about my experiences and things that interest me in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca and Mexico. I love the foods and I am interested in Mexico's
exceptional history, so a lot of information relating to them will be concentrated here. I will avoid Mexican politics from 1968 on and the drug war.
I live in an area that is kind of rural and not all that developed; I tend to visit rural areas and many of my photos will reflect this but please remember Mexico is a
modern country. When using dates, instead of stating 300 B.C. or 1000 A.D., I state 300 BCE (Before Common Era) and 1000 CE (Common Era).
