small change toward a rich life

I moved to Mexico: AMA

(Reposted for convenience from my personal site.)

(For those unfamiliar: ‘AMA’ is an acronym from Reddit that stands for ‘Ask Me Anything’.)

We’ve been living in Mexico for a few months now. At first I was too busy adjusting to talk about it, but now that I have the time to write something, I find I don’t know where to start. Our lives are different in many details, and I have little idea which ones other people would find interesting. I need direction.

So if you have any curiosity about our situation here, tell me what you’d like to know. I’ll answer everything — here if it’s related to personal finance in some way, on my personal blog otherwise.

    I think a lot about spending time in Mexico again, especially as a family experience, but alas the headlines are scary. How do you feel about your safety on a daily basis as a gringo, as a woman, and in general, and what, if anything, do you do to stay safe or deal with bad situations?

    I was looking back at the “football field” income graphs you did when you initially posted your reasoning for the plan to move to Mexico. You’d estimated somewhere around $30k – $35k cost of living there. After talking to Jak, it sounds like you guys moved into a slightly more expensive house with some other expenses tied to it, but it’d be interested to hear more about the financial reality of living there vs. what you planned for and expected from your research.

    Also, I’m really into social / political stuff and I’m curious about the income disparity in Mexico. (not statistically, I can research that — what’s it actually like for people living there…) You probably don’t see folks like Carlos Slim in your neighborhood, but if you have any thoughts that would be a good post about this sort of thing, I’d love to read about that!

    You guys have inspired me to give some thought to an experimental stint in Mexico. If you were writing about it here I’d be all over that, but since you’re not what I really need to know is “What are a few things you could tell me that would DISCOURAGE me from living in Mexico?”

    Качественная съемка, дорогие декорации и профессиональный грим – всеми этими благами современности активно пользуются порно студии, но они часто забывают, что в погоне за качеством теряется главное – натуральность. Первозданная естественность секса сохранилась только в любительских видео. Снятое, даже на фронталку смартфона, домашнее порно обладает гораздо большей живостью и искренность.. Эмоции участников не наиграны, а за камерой не стоит съёмочная группа. Таким видео можно простить все мелкие огрехи и не лучшие умения актёров работать перед камерой, ведь взамен мы получаем настоящий секс, без приукрас и постановки.
    Такие видео, Ð’Ñ‹ найдете на сайте – https://videotrack.net/ в свободном доступе! Отличное качеством и скорость загрузки! Заходи, и наслаждайся!
