LET’S LOOK at how, with a little luck and a bit of forethought, you can leave your old life behind and start anew.
Pay off those bills, chuck those worries, say adiós to the folks who are always annoying you, pack your bags, get on a plane and fly over the southern border.
You know you want to.
Here are some photos that illustrate what you can do with effort and a little cash, less than you might think.
First, there are flowers. The top photo was taken in our yard a couple of years ago. The rains are just getting started, and soon we´ll have this view again. The golden datura outside the bedroom window sent sweet smells to us just last night.
Only lunatics want to live on a Mexican beach because it’s often hot and buggy, a situation somewhat like those folks who always annoyed you. But the beach is great for a visit.
And then you head back to the cool mountains.
This photo was taken a few years ago. That’s my child bride in a pool in Zihuatanejo, just a 3.5-hour drive down an autopista from the Hacienda.
This is living easy, and you can do it too. I know you want to.
Pack your bags and wave adiós.
Do it before you die.
