Book Description
Join Charlie Montemayor and his wife Carole in his Retirement Tales- Two Gringos Living in Mexico. Charlie and Carole moved to Guanajuato, Mexico in 1995. From the time they started to pack for their move to Mexico, until the present, Charlie sent stories to family and friends in America via a newsletter that chronicled their adventures. These newsletters were often copied and passed around so that the readers could share these interesting and funny stories with their friends. Retirement Tales- Two Gringos Living in Mexico is a collection of the best of the articles from their newsletter.
For anyone who likes to visit Mexico or has ever thought that they might like to retire there someday, the book provides practical information on living in Mexico, the experience of building a house in Guanajuato, living costs and government regulations, things you need to know, all done with an insightful wisdom about the country, and a friendly view of our neighbour to the south. The book is instructive, interesting, and hilarious.

In addition to an appealing sense of humour, you will find a refreshing insight on Mexico and the Mexicans, and Charlie and Carole's love for their adopted country.
