Hi Everyone,

Lake Chapala – Ajijic- Mexico is famous for it’s great year around weather and mostly
sunny days. Mexico is also know for it relatively low prices on almost everything.

One big exception on the low prices is electrical energy, The government owns the electric company
know as Central Federal Electrico (C.F.E.). The cost of electrical energy here is not only expensive, but it gets more expensive the more of it you use PER KILOWATT HOUR, so it’s even more
important to conserve our use of electricity here.

That’s why we use propane gas to cook with and to heat our water and heat our homes for the few
days each year that this is needed,

But, I want to share with you a solution I call having fun with the sun. We all like sunny days that brighten our spirits and our homes and make our gardens grow all sorts of beautiful flowers and fruit trees, but there’s still another way the sun can help us. It can over time significantly fatten our wallets too. Watch the below video to see just how.

Thanks for watching, Siempre tu amigo, Sid

This review is from: How to Live A Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension At Safe, Beautiful & Affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico (Paperback)
Have read Sid’s blog for about a year. To refind info we had to flip thru posts to glean info we had seen or to find new info.
In this book it was laid out in a organized order. Also it was a good read.
I have been looking for a year at Chapala and the wife and mother-in-law a lot longer.
We bought other books, but this is the best.
We are leaving next week to go to Chapala, to see if we fit there.
See you Sid.
P.S. Loved the embedded QR codes (abbreviated from Quick Response Codes) with the info about different places and data. Thanks again.
