Pro: Freedom. Personal freedom. Con: Life in Chapala/Ajijic. Bored, salty, hard drinkers. Pro: Spanish is to me a better language, easy to learn, sounds nice .. singsong. Con: Roads are generally bad. Many items are much more expensive. Buy something used and it's really used. Mexicans are poor, two rungs above Cuba. The thieves are bold beyond belief.
