What Can a Retired Elephant Teach You About Retirement at Lake Chapala, Mexico?

August 25, 2010

When a friend sent me this video I immediately thought that the story was not unlike what you’ll find here at Lake Chapala Ajijic Mexico. No need to be alone in retirement: Perhaps you’ve lost a spouse (I’ve been there) , are divorced, kids gone and or busy with their own lives and now you’re retired and wondering ,”OK, What Now?” Even after retirement you can make friends from other cultures, backgrounds and ethic groups that will stand by you , even when you’re  sick and just be your friend. No need to be alone or lonely. Here at Lake Chapala there are so many things to do and new people to meet and share with  from all over the world from different cultures, ethnic groups, and backgrounds. There's absolutely no reason to sit around and feel lonely, sad, or even mad. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and come take a look at all the things life at Lake Chapala Mexico has to offer. The Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic  has lots of groups  who meet on their grounds, volunteer opportunities and much more.  There’s a Little Theatre group and about 80 or so other English speaking groups all waiting to welcome you to the area. So, I hope you, like Tara and Bella find a good friend  and live Happily ever, but if you want to increase your chances…. Then come on down to Lake Chapala Ajijic Mexico, where the weather is nice, the prices are are low and the people are all friendly.. You can do it. The Dream Team can help. Want to know more? Just send me an e mail with the subject line “Tara and Bella” so it will stand out in my email in box. That way I can find your e mail quickly among the hundreds I receive and give it priority attention. Looking forward to helping you, Siempre tu amigo, Sid

    Tara and Bella,

    Sid – I just loved that video – what a touching story and it is so true – why can’t we as humans relate the way Tara and Bella do. Everything you say about Chapala is so true – we have done extensive traveling and I never experienced the feeling of belonging to a place other than home like I did in Chapala – I can’t wait to go back again and finally to retire there – I think about it constantly – never thought a place like that existed….and of course we had you showing us around – you are like a tour guide!

    Hi Arlene, I get a lot of forwards and this one touched my spirit as well and it reminded me that there’s no need to be alone, especially at Lake Chapala – Ajijic. Siempre tu amigo, Sid
