On October 27, 2003 I achieved the refreshing goal of changing from an American wage-slave to a smiling resident of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Yes, life is very good here in paradise. See my friends James and Anna's website for all the details about Playa. We all have a favorite hangout - here's one of mine these days.

Back in February 2003, before pulling the plug, I bought some property in Pueblo SacBe. This is the jungle village where I live now, just a short drive north of town. I have a very active role in the village and the project. During my first year I built a rustic stone palapa house in the village to live in for a while. Here are a few pictures of my neighborhood.

So, now let me know how you're doing, and when you plan to come down for a session of margaritas on the beach!
