I AM MOVING TO MEXICO!
Is this you? Or are you planning to move to the country in the future? This website helps you to get to know more about its culture and to prepare your mind for the unknown. And this unknown entails everything that you will encounter while living in Mexico, from talking to your neighbors, attending festivities, up to queuing at the local bank.
Move to Mexico a great book about moving to and living in Mexico! I love how the author included so many strange little things about Mexican culture that people don’t think to tell you (like how “ahorita” can mean “in a little bit” or “never”)! I think it’s a must-read for anyone considering a move to Mexico, or who has recently moved there. Even if you’ve been there for years, it’s entertaining – there’s so many places where I laughed while reading and said “oh my god she’s right!”
Wether you are moving to, or living in, or just interested in living in Mexico, What the Mexpat is a great read. Debbie’s writing is easy to read despite the fact that she is an anthropologist. Her Dutch background and roots, the choices she made and the experiences she went through, make this book pleasant, interesting and even self-reflecting on your own life and choices! In short: I recommend this book and it is still available at Amazon!
