I understand. That's how I feel walking a trail along the banks of a streamful of water busily splashing over rocks, feeling the nice breeze and smelling the cedars and pines. Everyone should find the places that make them feel alive and spend time there. Congratulations to you for finding yours.

Thanks Rex, and cloud duster -- you keep watching us because you really want to partake! It is too bad because you KNOW what you are missing! Many others who watch us don't know the joys of Mexico and its wonderful people , so this is just trying to make them understand.

I love it and live it. Nothing like hearing the bells of sheep as they pass by or the roosters crowing in the morning. That's how most of the world lives. Only about 1/6 of the planet lives in an air conditioned bubble.
I tell all those that find out that we are retiring in Mexico, that the small town we are going to, has rush hour and grid lock.
Rush hour, is when the four burros, (donkey's) move at the same time.
Grid lock, is when the four burros, meet at the only corner, in town.
The people are warm and caring, not as cold and distant, as some of the persons that I lived close to, had neighbors that never returned a greeting, down old Mexico way, they get to know you and you get to know them.
I lived in Mexico a few years, wonderfull, lived eight years in Los Angeles, hated it, transfered to San Diego, better, now it is getting to big, to many people moving in from Los Angeles.
Will live in Mexico any day, also the US, but in a small town.
Sounds wonderful and I've been there, back in the 1950's and the 1970's, but after reading about the 49 bodies they found along the highway north of Monterey with their heads, hands and feet cut off, I don't exactly want to rush down there! And I've been to Monterey before, but it's very desolate driving down there.
I always find it interesting on how some try to sell others on the virtues of Mexico? To think that one could not find the same peacefulness and tranquility within the borders of the US or Canada is completely false. It seems odd to me that at times those on this section of the Forum complain about us "Northerners" invading the postings on the Mexico Forum exclaiming all the great things that are Mexico yet this post invites it? In the end, its all about ones perception of things, Im Happy the OP and others have found their own "little heaven on earth"....but if its all the same to you, Ill stay on this side of the border.
