    Steve.

    Great question. Many of us are living la vida loca. It is easy to complain about governmental ineptness, cultural differences etc but I would not trade it for anything. I just got home from a party where I was the only Gringo and had to answer the question many times about why I love Cancun more than Florida, how do I meet friends, why all the pretty girls like me, etc.

    It is really quite easy to meet new friends on a regular basis. The cops are crooks, Migracion drives us all crazy, it's hotter than hell, no one has change for $200 unless they give you 34 coins, keeping to the right on a sidewalk is unheard of but if we do not like it we are all free to leave, yet we remain.

    Life is good,
    T.J.

    LOL...yes, yes, we complain...but if we all posted on the board how great our lives are, people would think we were gloating and bragging all the time.

    The great thing about forums like these is that when we do complain we can often learn insights from others about whatever problems we have, not to mention misery loves company. :D

    I with you on this one Steve as a fellow Brit, we've got the life....Seeing what's happening back home (won't go into it) is reason enough to live in the sunshine. Doesn't take to much to make me happy, a cold beer, cheap smokes and all the eye candy in the world...happy days.

    Awesome attitude Steve. And I bet you do great at your job just cause u love it!!! In a way it also is good to share good experiences, any country in the world has its ups and downs and sometimes we are not happy with what we have anywhere. It is also good to ask advice on a lot of subjects to make life easier. It is also true that negative comments on any subject will always be a lot more than positive ones.
    I love it here, love my job, with the logical everyday life ups and downs.
    Thanks, your comment was great to read.! Cool video too...

    Well have watched the video from Uk and it reminds me why being there is better than being here- especially when its done nothing but rain here for 2 weeks!
