After almost two months here in Mexico City, tomorrow I will fly back to Ohio. The time has flown by, and yet, when I look at my old posts from January, I think, "Oh, yeah, that was on this trip." I will not be gone long. I already have my flight reservation to return in early April. I will be back down here for Easter and for Alejandro's birthday.
This time I am returning home as a married man. The simple wedding was a milestone in my life, but only the first step in the changes that I hope to make this year. The owner of the condo I rent will be retiring in March, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to purchase it in a timely manner. Then comes the even more daunting task of selling my house in Ohio. The real estate market back home is no longer hot as it was before. I hope it does not take forever to sell it. Then comes the permanent move to Mexico.
I hope that well before the end of the year I will be changing the name of this blog from "Travels of a Retired Teacher" to "A Retired Teacher in Mexico City".
