Membership Has Its Priviledges

May 5, 2016

Hi Everyone,

Sid Grosvenor here to share  more of my wonderful life here at safe, beautifcl and affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico.  From time to time I share one of my favorite places here at Lake Chapala in the heart of the village of Ajijic (Ah hee hick).  If you search the archives of you will find various articles about the “Lake Chapala Society”. One of the very first Lake Chapala area gringo groups.

They just keep getting better. So from time to time I add a another article about this great organization located on extensive grounds in Ajijic,   When you visit you might easily mistake this place for a modern “Garden of Eden” (Minus the snake.)  They are an especially valuable resource of newcomers. Each year they add new services to make living here even better. So please read the following (snitched directly from their website) in the hope that you will visit their site, then when you visit us here at Lake Chapala ,that you will visit them in person. You’ll be glad you did.

All for now,  Siempre tu amigo, Sid  (Please read more below)
