There are a lot of things to do in Austin, another reason we decided to move here. We arrived in May and school wasn’t quite out yet. We thought we’d have plenty of time to find places for our regular extracurricular activities and maybe try some new ones, and we’d have a schedule set by the time school started. Continue reading
One day as I left work I passed three people coming in for the next shift. As I passed the first man I smiled and said “Good morning!” He not only didn’t respond, he turned his head away from me in an attempt to pretend he hadn’t noticed. I said it again to the second person, and again there was no response. By the third person I was feeling a little desperate and invisible, but surely not everyone would fail to say hello back to me.

See you soon.
Two days ago Mexico had one of the strongest earthquakes in decades. Usually when something happens in Mexico we get “Are you ok?” messages, laugh a little and explain it was on the other side of the country from us. Not this time. Continue reading
One of the most common stereotypes is that all the police in Mexico are corrupt and will expect a bribe. In two years of traveling and driving and sometimes getting pulled over here we’ve never had a problem…until last week. Then it became a very expensive problem.
I see questions about internet speed and availability in almost every online group for travelers. We are digital nomads, traveling and working online for 2 years now without having to worry about internet. Want to know the secret? Have a backup plan. Continue reading
“Chilango” is a slang term for a resident of Mexico City. It might have originally been a derogatory term, but they have taken it as their own and it’s become a term that portrays fierce pride at living in this unique metropolis. Continue reading
