Just a Few of the Gringos who Love Lake Chapala

August 5, 2014

Hello Everyone, Well This morning I went down to the Chapala Malecon to walk and saw the usual group of gringos gathered there.

Some had already taken their morning walk, others were just beginning to do so. Since I had my camera phone with me I thought it would be fun to see if some of them would like to say hello to all of you. Of COURSE they wanted to. SO, I asked a few of them about their life here at Lake Chapala.

So click on the video below and check out this fun impromptu interview of a representative sampling of “The Gringos of Lake Chapala!”

So as you can see we’re a fun loving bunch here, It’s easy to make new friends here as you can see, I made some new ones this monrning.

    Great video Sid! I think we met all of your friends in that video when we were there last October! We’ll be down again in a couple of months and plan to get reacquainted over coffee on the malecon again

    Looking forward to our first visit. Dec. 26-Jan 3. Considering retirement in Lake Chapala. Enjoyed the video…lots of nice people.

    Hi Lisa, Great, Look forward to your visit. Tu amigo, Sid

  • Sid Grosvenor

    Hi Shirley, Thanks for taking the time to comment. There are many hundreds more of nice people here waiting to be friends. We all love our lives here and enjoy spreading the word,

    Thanks again for your comments. Tu amigo, Sid

    Sid, you do such a wonderful job of showing how great life can be in Mexico. Keep up the good work. Sadly, prices just keep heading up in the States.

  • Sid Grosvenor

    Hi Barbara, Yes, It’s sad, but true. I do not see any end in sight in my lifetime either. The cost of living here at Lake Chapala is a lot less, but there are so many more reasons to come here to live. Like the year around great weather, the large ExPat community form all over the world, and so many activities to keep us involved in life and young in spirit,

    The othernice thing is that there’s no pressure to get involved, join clubs or do “anything”. You can be as busy or un-busy as you want. Thanks again for your comment. Let me know when I can help. Tu amigo, Sid

    Y’know, I was starting to think that moving to Mexico would be ‘too much trouble’ at my age, 61. I’m waiting on SS to kick in, in one more year as getting work in the states seems to be impossible at this point. But this video really made me rethink that; especially Ellie that has been there so long! If she can do it and readjust to a new place and new language, so can I!! I would love to be able to talk with her, and the rest of your friends. Can someone really live down there comfortably (no need for luxuries!) on 1K a month?

  • Sid Grosvenor

    Thanks for the nice words Barbara, I sincerely appreciate them. Tu amigo, Sid

  • Sid Grosvenor

    Well, as can see we come in all ages, sizes and colors from all over the world. You can still lead an active lifestyle here in your 80′s even.
    So, the Baby Boomers arriving can enjoy several decades of retirement here and that includes you!
    Tu amigo, Sid
