I am leaving early in the morning Wednesday on my way to México City. Paul is staying home this time, as he still works part time and on Fridays helps out at the Luna Gallery. This Friday should be even more interesting as it is also the First Friday Art Walk, so there should be a lot of visitors to the gallery in the early evening. That ought to keep him out of trouble!
I’m heading to Mexico City as a participant in the 1st National Forum on the North American Retiree Community:Expectations & Options for Living in Mexico. It is co-sponsored by the International Community Foundation, the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Relations (SRE) and Mexican Secretariat of Tourism (SECTUR). Of course I will write about the forum when it’s over, but it looks like they are very interested in learning about the retiree experience in México and hearing our views and concerns. There will be 50 retirees from all areas in México attending. The agenda shows México Tourism Secretary Gloria Guevara Manzo speaking and there is a possibility that Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne may attend some portion of the forum, too! I really look forward to hearing what they have to say in such an intimate setting.
I’m also excited about having a visit with my son and his family. It’s been a while since I’ve reported on the antics of granddaughter Consuelo, and I booked an extra day on my trip so we could spend it together. She’s almost three now, if you can believe it! Their renovation of their house in Colonia Roma is now complete and I look forward to seeing them enjoying it.
This should be a great trip, with the forum, family, and lots of exploring, too. See you Sunday!
