Hi Jackson!

Right now I live in San Luis Potosi. But, my son lives in Tapachula with his wife and son.

He owns a school of Aikido (martial art). Let me know if you would like to meet him and I'll send you his particulars.

I miss Rolly! I thought Rolly a grand fellow. We only chatted once or twice online when I asked him about graffiti in Mexico. Some of the graffiti is glorious, spreading over walls like mysterious messages left in the night by the spirits of dead gods.

Unlike most of you, I do not live in far-flung places nor have traveled the world. I have been out of the United States only twice, and only one of those times really counts. I crossed over to Canada from Minnesota for five minutes when I was ten years old, long enough to acquire a small red and white flag with a maple leaf on it. It was more like tagging First Base than actually going anywhere.

Mexico counts. I was member of a high school Spanish class from Tennessee, who dropped down from Texas like a bunch of teenage tarantulas, landed briefly on Montemorelos, then hurtled on down to torment Mexico City. Our faculty chaperones were so traumatized that our school never again took students out of the country. We were that bad.

Since then, life has not offered me the opportunity to travel, but recently I discovered Google Maps. The 3D streetview feature has allowed freedom at last to wander all over the world. In some ways it beats going in person. I can gaze as long as I want to at whatever fascinates me without someone wondering why I've stood for two hours in front of their house.

But no matter where I "travel," I always return to Mexico.

And that's why I'm here. I see things in my 3D wanderings that I have questions about, and nobody to ask. Most of the info I find online about Mexico is geared toward gringos with money who want to live the gringo life in Mexico. I am not a gringo with money, and even if I was, that is not what interests me. I'm interested in Mexico from the inside out, not from the outside in. Some of you sound like you know it from the inside out, so maybe you can tolerate a virtual traveler in your midst, asking strange questions.

I am not one of those who is particularly qualified to tell you about Mexico, but as a person who loves looking at maps and has enjoyed virtual travel, I really liked your introduction. You sound like someone who would be fun to get to know. There are quite a few people on this board who will answer all sorts of questions, so ask away. Even those of us who live pretty much as they did in their home country may have an insight or two to enrich your "travel" experience.

Thank you for the welcome, Yucatandreamer! And I didn't mean to disparage the knowledge of those who live pretty much as they did in their home country. (Not that you said I did, but I realize how that part of my post probably sounded.)

That is so cool that I'm not the only one who enjoys maps and virtual travel. I knew there must be others or else Google wouldn't keep blazing the trails, but the people I know personally tend to turn up their noses at it, saying they'd rather travel in person. Well, I'm glad they can, but I'm still thrilled that I can travel virtually.

Good afternoon, friends.

My name is Gabriel. I'm in my twenties and I was born in USA, but I've been living in Baja California for a while now. I've lived near the Mexican border pretty much my whole life, mostly in Southern California, and I speak both English and Spanish fluently.

I met my (now) husband via mutual friends in 2010, which is one of the main reasons I moved to Mexico. We married last year in Mexico City because the legal situation is somewhat complicated right now for LGBT couples who wish to marry in this state. Currently, we live in Mexicali with our two pit bulls, but we are looking into moving to DF or possibly Guadalajara to escape the desert and pursue new opportunities.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge/experiences and learning more about everyone else. :)
