Certified last Gringo in town

Getting back to real life in Mexico

Adios Gringo

I took my neighbors Danny and Linda to the airport Wednesday and Jimmy and Sandy hopped a bus to Vallarta yesterday.  All headed back to Canada, BC. Glen is driving back to Victoria and he has a little less than two weeks before he leaves.

We learned a whole lot more about each other this year and relationships expanded and contracted as conditions presented themselves. It was an interesting and eye opening year.

Diana who I'd not heard from for a year or two came back in November all "lovey dovey" and liberated from a divorce wanting a ride from the airport. She rapidly fell into a "get lost" scenario of moving from one place to another and new "friends" from who knows where. She married a very unhappy guy and has not figured out how to escape.

No idea what happened to Red Neck Steve and Buzzard West.  Their nice houses in Barra look abandoned and overgrown. Life changes here and everywhere it seems.  Actually I think Buzzard West just got too fat and died.


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.
