Surviving Mexico Adventures and Disasters

Surviving Mexico, one disaster or adventure at a time!

Web Site:

My husband, son and I left behind the "American Dream" and opted to try and make a life in Central México 7 years ago. We have had our share of joy and misfortune in our efforts to make this life a reality, but we always try to remember that it's the journey, not the destination that is life. Within this blog, you can find some of the highlights ( and low lights) of our journey. One of our goals is to become self-sustainable and reduce our eco-footprint on our world. Recently our efforts were recognized when we were chosen as one of the Star 2014 Modern Homesteaders sponsored by Mother Earth News. We also consider ourselves stewards rather than owners and to that end, have had many lovely relationships with dogs, cats, horses, goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, donkeys and rabbits. We live in a sparsely inhabited area on the fringe of el cerro (no man's land) in La Yacata outside of Moroleon, Guanajuato. Human greed and politics have allowed our community to be defrauded and left without running water, electricity and sewer. To that end, we have become active socios (members) of our community association with the main purpose of improving the quality of life for residents of La Yacata. You can also find information on negotiating the legality of living in Mexico, parenting challenges, cultural stories, language and communication idiosyncrasies and a host of other adventures and disasters. Please feel free to ask, comment or share your story with us.
