Hi Everyone, 

Does the rain turn you on? Yes, it can be inconvenient at times where ever you live, but if you’re retired and don’t have to get up, and trudge to work in it, risking a fender bender or worse, it’s not so bad.

And, if you to live at Lake Chapala – Ajijic it can be fascinating and even invigorating.

The few who had just as soon not ever have rain at least realize that the rains give us the good quality deep wells we need, fill up our beautiful lake, make the mountains turn  gorgeous varieties of green and provide a variety of jobs for our Mexican hosts.

So I say, “Viva la lluvia!” Now! Please check the link below to go to an excellent blog post by my great friend, Heather K.

Heather shares with us some great photos and her thoughts of our short rainy season.

This review is from: How to Live A Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension At Safe, Beautiful & Affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico (Paperback)
Cavfiar Lifestyle has given me more information about Lake Chapala/Ajiic than I have learned in over 30 years of visiting this area. Sid Grosvenor is the definitive source on the area. His information is accurate and up to date. Sid cuts through the red tape for you.

In a nicely personal, easy to read writing style, Sid provides excellent insight into the character of the Mexican people, the substance of the Mexican culture, and the vibrancy of the Mexican lifestyle. Grosvenor combines a superb understanding and love of Chapala/Ajiic, Mexico with a meticulously researched, pragmatic guidebook authored by an experienced sherpa who guides you over every inch of the terrain.

Buy this book. It is the most complete, descriptive guidebook to this area.

    Hi Sid, While I enjoyed the blog post and shared it on my Facebook page, the blog itself wasn’t by me. I saw it on the Ajijic News page, and shared it from there. The original blog was by somebody named John. Credit where credit’s due! Maybe somebody else here will know John’s full name?

    This is our first rainy season and we love it. The mornings are cool and the mountains beautiful, capped in clouds. Things are quieter lakeside, and the tempo of life is even more laid back, if that could be possible. We do live in paradise.
