guess where life brought me? after much debating over my future financial situation, i decided on baja california so i could be close to my children who live in california. it was either go home to chile where i loathe the cold winters and smoggy santiago, or the southern tip of the world in chiles patagonia where i have a piece of land but no built house yet. i remembered spending many holidays in baja when my children were small and recalled how i loved it.
so here i am, tigo by my side,
the whole gang came with me to get me settled in and say their goodbyes and celebrate jon's birthday.
so it's pretty clear with my aesthetic tastes that i couldn't have been more right about my choice of moving here.
i rented a small, narrow, tri-level townhouse overlooking the ocean in "brisas del mar" for a third of what it would cost me in the usa or chile.

i have always loved mexico! my trips to oaxaca left a deep mark in my heart of hearts. i plan on going again for dia de los muertos come october.
so i know i will find so much to fill me up here and my puppykins loves the beach life.
the sunsets are out of this world
a roadtrip down the road yesterday took me back to "la misión" where i visited my friends pedro and carmen who have a house worthy of the mediterranean. i wasblown away with their view.
me, looking down on that view
i spend more time outdoors than in, taking time to acquaint myself with the periphery.
i brought very few things with me; most was left in a pod since the houses here are rented furnished. i only brought my essentials: art supplies, books, and a few collectibles.
i've begun little by little though.
