Description

Mexico Dreams is the story of two baby-boomers who make their escape to a colonial town in the Sierra Madres - only to find it's not all mariachis and margaritas. Part travelogue, part inspiration and part soap opera, the entries are based on their journey which was originally documented in a blog. Stories of hoping and dreaming, stories of doing - and ultimate undoing. There's a lot of sage advice, not only about moving to Mexico - but advice about how to live there without going loco. And a lot of pointed commentary about gringos behaving badly. No one is spared the poison pen - from the Posers to the Wannabes, the Rescuers to the Sexpats. If you're an expat yourself - we're sure you'll recognize the types. And if you're planning to become an expat, you need to know how gringo gangs work. Thought-provoking, flippant and sometimes downright funny, it's a must-read for anyone looking to escape to Mexico. It may not be mariachis and margaritas all the time, but there's never a dull moment in paradise.show more
