GEM - Gringo en Mexico

I've seen this character and his program before but think the series only lasted a few years.  Just ran across a rerun on an all Spanish SKY channel.   The program is 3 ways entertaining;  he is a cartoon character, his pronunciation is absolutely terrible .... and he does interesting stuff in interesting places.   The only  gringos speaking Spanish harder to understand than this guy are French and Germans.  At times it sounds like he is reading from a prompter.   I think he really has the vocabulary but hope most other gringos here have a better ear for the language and less like a computer program.

There are a number of these on YouTube if you want to look around


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
