Over 20 years of living, traveling, vacationing, buying, exploring, building, selling, dining, collecting, learning, and trying to sleep in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general, life in the USA, life in Yucatan,  politics, history, archaeology and whatever else comes up.

Maybe someone will find it interesting, but at least I’ll be able to say what I think when I actually do have a thought, which may be rarely, or not.

    I am a producer on the HGTV show “House Hunters International” and came across your blog in my search for expats to appear on our show. If you are intersted in knowing more, please email me and I will be happy to give you all the details. Thanks so much!

    • Hello Heather,

      You might note there are no photos of myself or family members on this blog, nor of our house, nor identifying information. That was not an accidental omission. We do enjoy HGTV’s House Hunters, but are more private people than those who appear.
      Thank you!

    My name is Jillian van der Gracht and I am currently in my fourth year at Capilano University, in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada working towards my Bachelor of Tourism Management. In our fourth year we have to complete a research paper that involves us each conducting our own research on a particular topic about the tourism industry. The topic I have chosen is expatriate tourism in Merida, Yucatan. I chose this topic after living in Merida from 2008-2009 after I graduated high school. I spent ten weeks taking an international program at Technologia Turistica Total, and then continued working with them and their Life Long Learning program.

    I have read portions of your blog and I was wondering if you would be interested in filling out a survey about your experiences in Merida. I was also hoping that you could possibly pass along the survey to some of your other expatriate friends that would be interested in assisting me in my research.

    I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read this and hope to hear from you soon. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
