Home in Sayulita

Another day in the life

I'm here in Sayulita Mexico for the winter. Things are good. The weather is not so good today :-(( We are having stormy weather, waves crashing, wind and rain. It's very romantic but unfortunately I'm by myself today..... Joel is in Morelia and Veronica is off to Patsquaro. I am waiting for the internet guy to arrive. We have blazing fast internet here in Sayulita. A private company has installed fiber optic and I am in sight of their antenna. This is a big thing!! Telmex delivers 175 bps. Just barely enough to do anything. I didn't have much luck renting the apartment in San Francisco for the short term. I tried just before Christmas but came back here to Sayulita for the Holidays. Never like to miss the spectacular fireworks on the beach in PV. Then went back to SF and rented the apartment quickly. Timing I guess. I will be 80 this year and each time I reach a new threshold I think I'm finally old. But so many people around me are older and in great shape. So I guess I'm not THAT
old yet. When is old, old....I have a friend that is traveling around the world. I am anxious to join her for while this year. It's my goal for the year. She is just finishing Asia. Off to Africa next. I am selling my condo in PV. After commissions, an incredible high capital gain, I'll be lucky to get what I paid for it 10 years ago. Just too much trouble to keep. I am going to earnestly try harder to sell the house in Sayulita and then I plan to retire from any activity except staring at the walls (LOL) We'll see. I'm happy and in good health. the peso is at 15 to the dollar. What more could I want.


  1. Hi! Where can I get some of that bandwidth? I'm a software dev here to chill and need to work tomorrow. The fast Internet I was promised won't hold up for voip.

    I'm pretty friendly too :)

  2. Age is a state of mind, you are only as old as you allow yourself to feel. Use your retirement and the money you make on your real estate to do things you have always wanted to do like traveling like your friend. Think of all the things you've always wanted to do or do things you really enjoy. Good luck!

  3. I understand how frustrating it can be to try and sell your home. It is never easy and can turn into more of a headache than you would like. I enjoyed reading this entry and advise you to maybe work with a buyers agent who is going to be able to assist you in both buying and selling a home you need.
