It's September 14th and Mexican Independence Day is 2 days away.. Already people are streaming to the Ocean beaches. I cant styand a crowded beach. It's better to wait for the off season.
So let me introduce myself: My name is Bob Cox, I've lived, off & on , in Mexico for 40 years..I'm an officially accredited tourist guide for the State of Tlaxcala. I have a wife, (Raquel), 2 kids who are grown and married, living in the next State over, 50 miles from here.
Originally I was raised in Georgia but left when I was a teenager and wanderlust overcame me...I carried a copy of Jack Kerouacs book, "on the Road" for years thinking it was the bible.
Crossed the border back and forth so many times I lost count... Now have resident papers and a work permit .
If anyones thinking of living, retiring, snowbirding for an extended period drop me a line and I'll try to answer your questions.
I'm located in the central highlands of Mexico...I like Mountains.. Do most of my business around Puebla...Tlaxcala...vera cruz area.
Went to Puebla yesterday to see my Dr. at the Social Security Clinic...I have mildly high blood pressure... I've managed to get into the system and get free medicine, medical care and meds.
Saw an interesting police vehicle yesterday downtown Puebla...it was a golf cart...check out the photo. Where I live in Tlaxcala they have bike patrols... easier to get through traffic jams.
Lot of flak about how unsafe Mexico is, but I feel safer here than in the U.S. .
Hope to hear from you. Bob
